End Times News Update
Below we will post major news items that we believe relate to the fulfillment of end times Bible prophecy.
Friends, Satan is doing his very best to suppress the truth because he knows the Bible, and he knows Bible prophecy. Satan is full aware that the truth is the most powerful weapon to use against him and his deceptions. Which is why he is doing all he can to keep the people entertained, so that they cannot see what is right in front of them.
When we seek and learn the truth and then live according to it, the enemy's deceptions become useless, because we then come under the Spirit and power of God, which Satan CANNOT penetrate. This is why it is so important to seek and learn the truth in these end times we live in. The news is full of prophecy fulfilling images today. All the Biblical signs of the end times have been fulfilled like never before in history, and we are living during the last "hours". Just take a look at the following prophecy fulfilling news events:
The World is Shaking (April 2014)
"Hundreds of earthquakes strike central Idaho, rattling nerves" (source)
"Nicaragua was rocked by two earthquakes last week with a magnitude greater than 6.0. The country has experienced thousands of aftershocks." (source)
"A series of earthquakes over the weekend continued to break alarming records of seismic activity in Oklahoma ... We have had almost as many magnitude 3 and greater already in 2014 than we did for all of 2013." (source)
This is just a small sample of the earthquakes happening around the world today. The world is shaking friends, and in more than one way. God is giving us plenty of warning for His coming judgments and we need to BE READY. How? By giving our lives to following Christ Jesus.
Rick Warren is interviewed on a Catholic News show and talks about the Vatican delegation at his Saddleback church, pope francis, false 'religious liberty' and his shared desire with the Vatican for complete 'Christian' unity based on 'common values and beliefs' ... which excludes doctrinal differences. In this interview Rick praises pope Francis and says that "if you like the pope, you'll like Jesus". And he says that his favorite channel to watch is the Roman Catholic EWTN channel.
Rick Warren is a false preacher and is being used by Satan to unite the professed Christian world with the Vatican. Not only that, he is a leader of the greater ecumenical movement in trying to unite Christians and Muslims. And he has a following of MILLIONS of people worldwide, with leaders of churches all over the world looking to Mr Warren on how to reach people - INSTEAD OF USING THE WORD OF GOD.
PLEASE don't be fooled by this false 'religious liberty' stance that these ecumenical leaders are pushing. This is just Satan's ploy to unite all professed Christian churches AND other faiths together under the leadership of the Roman Catholic pope. Interestingly, Rick Warren stated in this video himself that "freedom to worship and religious liberty are different". And do you know what? When the "kings of the earth" give their power to the Papal beast, the false 'religious liberty' of the Roman Catholic Church and Co. will still be in place, but the TRUE Christian's FREEDOM TO WORSHIP according to our own conscience will be taken away and persecution for the TRUE Christian will rise again. Just like in the dark ages when the Roman Catholic power killed MILLIONS of God's TRUE people.
Wireless Companies to add Kill Switch to Smartphones (April 2014)
"A trade group for wireless providers said Tuesday that the nation's biggest mobile device manufacturers and carriers will soon put anti-theft tools on the gadgets to try to deter rampant smartphone theft ... the companies including Apple, Samsung, Verizon Wireless, AT&T, U.S. Cellular, Sprint, and T-Mobile."
The 'tools' are being put in place now ready for the enforcement of the mark of the beast. And the 'reasons' they give for putting these things in place always seem to be good reasons. But unfortunately Satan is the one running the show in this world, as he is the "prince of this world" (for the time being). And he is deceiving the world into being ready to take the beast's mark.
Please note: Technology itself is NOT the mark of the beast. But it will be used to help ENFORCE the mark. See HERE for the truth about what the mark of the beast is.
"More than 300 earthquakes have shaken Chile's far-northern coast the past week, keeping people on edge as scientists say there is no way to tell if the unusual string of tremors is a harbinger of an impending disaster."
Conflicts and wars all over the world. Earthquakes rattling the earth all over the place. Economic woes across the planet. Sin and wickedness rife all around. God's 'professed' churches turning away from the Bible truth. Natural disasters striking fear into the hearts of men. The day of the LORD is soon to be upon us all. And no one will have an excuse as to why they weren't ready or warned!
Oceans Dying at a Rate Unparalleled in History (March 2014)
"A recent study warned that ocean acidification is accelerating at a rate unparalleled in the life of the oceans-perhaps the fastest rate in the planet's existence-which is degrading marine ecosystems on a mass scale ... The current rate of change is likely to be more than 10 times faster than it has been ... in the earth's history, said German marine biologist Hans Poertner upon the release of a recent study published in the journal Nature."
The world is dying friends. It is groaning and breaking under the burden of sin and God's final judgment is soon to fall upon us all. The ONLY way of securing any hope for the future is through Christ Jesus. Turn from your sins and give your life over to Jesus today! He is our only hope.
"If anyone had hoped that the Arab Spring and Occupy protests a few years back were one-off episodes that would soon give way to more stability, they have another thing coming ... the post-2008 crash era, including 2013 and early 2014, has seen a persistence and proliferation of civil unrest on a scale that has never been seen before in human history. This month alone has seen riots kick-off in Venezuela, Bosnia, Ukraine, Iceland, and Thailand."
Revelation 11:18 ...'And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.'
Are you ready to meet Jesus Christ? We are THE GENERATION that will see Jesus return! Please seek and turn to Jesus while you still can. The end is near and probation is soon to close!
The Central Bank is launching a major national campaign to persuade consumers and businesses to stop using cash and cheques in favour of online transactions ... A group of representatives from businesses, consumer groups, banks and government departments have been driving a plan to persuade the public and companies to embrace cashless transactions."

Another country added to the long list of countries pushing to get rid of cash. And why? Without cash, it will be easy for those in control to stop us from 'buying and selling', which Revelation 13 confirms will happen to those who refuse to go along with the mark of the beast (mark of the Roman Catholic Church). Friends, we are speedily heading towards that day when the mark will be enforced. Have you accepted Jesus yet and decided to follow Him? If not, now is the time before it's too late. Are you still stuck in Babylon? Then now is the time to come out of her.
Charismatics Embrace Unity with the Pope - Episcopal Bishop says Luther's Protest is OVER!
"A Charismatic conference with Kenneth Copeland Ministries and a video message from Pope Francis calling for unity with them. Episcopal bishop says that Luther's protest (Protestant Reformation) is OVER! And that they are now 'all Catholics'."
Revelation 17 says that Babylon (Roman Catholic Church) is THE MOTHER of harlots. And we are seeing her harlot daughters return to her. The pope is being embraced all around the world by all religions and denominations like never before! We are rapidly approaching the last days friends. Please be ready and give your all to Christ Jesus ... And stand FIRM upon His true Word, no matter what the rest of the world is doing.
2 Corinthians 6:14-18 ...'what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.'
"The World Bank's former chief economist wants to replace the US dollar with a single global super-currency, saying it will create a more stable global financial system ... The dominance of the greenback is the root cause of global financial and economic crises, Justin Yifu Lin told Bruegel, a Brussels-based policy-research think tank. The solution to this is to replace the national currency with a global currency."
In Revelation 17:12-13 it says that the 'kings of the earth' will give their allegiance and power to the beast system. And this will enable the mark of the beast to be enforced worldwide, with the help of a digital currency which can be blocked at the press of a button. We have never lived in a time like we do today where all the pieces are just about in place. The technology is in place and the calls are going forth!
But God will continue to hold back the 'winds of strife' until His people turn to Him and are sealed. Are you ready? Have you given your all to Christ Jesus? Now is the time!
Mass Animal Deaths (February 2014)
In Hosea 4:3 we read the following ..."Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away."
This Bible prophecy is being fulfilled in our day. Just take a look at all the mass deaths that are happening around the world today. This is a recent phenomenon in which animals, especially the fish of the seas and rivers are dying in massive numbers every week.
The entire world us just about polluted and God's Spirit is being withdrawn. Friend, I hope you are submitting your life to Christ Jesus, because He is our ONLY hope for the future.
"WASHINGTON - In line with the previously announced timeline, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) today released an achievable schedule for the phased enforcement of the REAL ID Act of 2005 ... The Federal Government will begin phasing in enforcement of the REAL ID Act as required by law, in a measured, fair, responsible, and achievable way. The first phase will begin on January 20, 2014." (source)
"Abu Dhabi: Are you tired of carrying multiple bank cards and remembering personal identification numbers (PIN)? Your plight will end soon. The national ID card issued by Emirates Identity Authority (Emirates ID) will soon replace ATM and credit cards. National ID cards will be used for financial transactions as part of a cooperation agreement between Emirates ID and financial institutions, a senior official told Gulf News on Monday." (source)
Moves are now being made all over the world to put the systems in place ready for the enforcement of the mark of the beast. Have you given your life to Christ Jesus yet? Now is the time friends!
"Weather records have tumbled across North America, with freezing temperatures even in the southern US ... The most extreme arctic blasts, blamed on a weather pattern known as the polar vortex, were said to have affected nearly 190 million people." (source)
"Winter storms continue to batter much of western Europe with high seas, heavy rain and flooding ... In Portugal amateur video captured the moment huge waves in the harbour area of the city of Porto engulfed the coastal road sweeping away cars." (source)
We are getting more and more 'strange' weather patterns all over the world. And more and more 'severe' storms. But those who give their lives to Christ Jesus have nothing to fear, because no matter what this life throws at us, we have an eternal bliss to look forward to in heaven and on the new earth to come.
"In this clip from 'Super Soul Sunday', Armstrong and Oprah discuss how compassion is the single thread running through every major belief system ... Confucius was the first person to formulate the Golden Rule, as far as we know, 500 years before Christ, Armstrong says ... I think the fact that every single one of the world's faiths has developed this ethos of the Golden Rule separately from one another, independently, and said, 'This is what brings us to Nirvana, or to God' - they did it because it worked."
This is one of the main goals and deceptions of Satan during these last days, to unite the churches and faiths for the sake of 'peace'. Did you notice what Armstrong and Oprah did? They put Jesus Christ in the background, and put Confucius in His place, so that all religions can be united, knowing that all religions cannot be united based on the teachings of our LORD and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
There are NOT many ways to God as these people would have you believe. There is only ONE way, and that way is Jesus Christ our LORD.
John 14:6 ...'I AM the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father but by Me.'
Cash is Dead, are Credit Cards Next? (December 2013)
"The future of money has arrived, and it's called Coin. It looks like a credit card. It's the size of a credit card. It swipes in credit card machines. But it holds the information of up to eight of your debit, credit, rewards, or gift cards. And you can switch between cards by simply pressing a button. The new product, launched recently, promises to change the way consumers spend money in a secure and efficient way."
There is a big push to get rid of cash now, so that the mark of the beast can be enforced, and then they can easily stop those of us who refuse the mark from 'buying and selling', once it all goes electronic.
"The Philippines Red Cross said it has received reports of 1,200 deaths in two areas devastated by typhoon Haiyan ... An estimated more than 1,000 bodies were seen floating in Tacloban as reported by our Red Cross teams, she told Reuters. In Samar, about 200 deaths. Validation is ongoing." (Link)
"Typhoon Usagi has killed at least 25 people in Guangdong province of south China ... The storm has affected 3.5 million people on the Chinese mainland." (Link)
"A typhoon blew out of the northern Philippines on Sunday after leaving 13 people dead, but officials remained on alert after another storm was spotted in the Pacific ... Typhoon Nari flooded farmlands and destroyed thousands of houses in provinces north of Manila." (Link)
"Indian disaster teams have begun a relief operation after Cyclone Phailin crashed into eastern areas, forcing up to one million people to flee ... authority official said 14 people had died." (Link)
"At least 14 people have been killed after a powerful typhoon passed close to the Japanese capital. Typhoon Wipha caused landslides and flooding on Izu Oshima island, south of Tokyo." (Link)
"At least 93 people have been reported dead after a magnitude 7.2 earthquake hit the central Philippines. Historic churches were among the many damaged buildings, and stampedes were reported in two cities." (Link)
Luke 21:25-26 ...'and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.'
"The Central Bank of Nigeria has contracted Dermalog Identification Systems to deploy a biometric technology throughout the country's banking system. In particular, this project, worth more than $50 million will see the introduction of biometric ARMs, point of sale machines, as well as biometric fraud detection systems."
Countries all around the world are now making a great push to turn their economies into cashless societies. Bible prophecy is being fulfilled and the stage is being set for the enforcement of the mark of the beast. Please get ready! Give your all to Christ Jesus and have a DAILY relationship with Him, because it is only through Christ Jesus that we will be able to get through the storm that is coming.
Mastercard Tracking Global Economies Heading for Cashless Societies (September 2013)
"The Cashless Journey ... tracks how 33 major economies are progressing from cash-based to cashless societies ... The report identifies Belgium (where an estimated 93% of the value of consumer spend was cashless), France (92%), Canada (90%), the UK (89%), Sweden (89%), Australia (86%) and the Netherlands (85%) as countries where cashless payments are nearly ubiquitous, and attributes the broad movement away from cash to the uptake of new cashless payment technologies such as mobile, contactless and EMV Chip and a modern payments infrastructure."
Whether we like it or not, cashless societies are on the way and we are getting closer and closer all the time. Bible prophecy told us that the beast system of Revelation 13 (America and the United Nations led by the Vatican) would enforce the beast's mark upon the world and stop anyone from buying and selling who refuse it. And for them to successfully implement this, they need to get rid of cash, so that they can block someone's ability to buy or sell simply at the press of a button.
Violence Raging Across the World (September 2013)
Car Bomb in Pakistan: "A powerful car bomb ripped through a busy marketplace in Peshawar, the regional capital of northwestern Pakistan, early Sunday, killing at least 38 people in the third major attack in and around the city in the past week."(Link above)
Students shot dead in Nigeria:"Suspected Islamist gunmen have attacked a college in north-eastern Nigeria, killing up to 50 students. The students were shot dead as they slept in their dormitory at the College of Agriculture in Yobe state." (link)
Shopping mall attack in Kenya:"The militants who led the attack on a Kenyan mall hired a shop there in the weeks leading up to the siege ... Sixty-seven people are known to have died in the four-day siege. Kenya's Red Cross says 61 others are still missing." (link)
Matthew 24:12 ...'Because iniquity shall ABOUND, the love of many shall wax cold.'
Two Major Earthquakes Rock Pakistan in 1 Week, Many Hundreds Dead (September 2013)
"At least 15 people were killed when a major earthquake hit Pakistan's south-west on Saturday, days after another quake in the same region killed 515 people ... Since then tens of thousands of people have been sleeping under the open sky or tents."
It certainly seems that the major, intense earthquakes are getting more frequent. And natural disasters as a whole are becoming the "norm". This is the world we now live in, and the Bible foretold what it would be like in these end times (Matthew 24).
Have you given your life over to Christ Jesus? As He is our only hope for the future now.
Fifteen US Cities had over 100 Murders in 2012, Chicago had 500!! (September 2013)
"The FBI has released its CRIME in the United States 2012 report, featuring the official crime stats nationwide for 2012. Chicago led the nation with 500 murders, 81 more than the runner up, New York City, whose population is more than three times larger than the Windy City. Fifteen cities logged more than 100 murders in 2012, with Chicago, New York, Detroit, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Baltimore, and Houston leading the pack with more than 200 murders each."
Matthew 24:12 ...'Because iniquity shall ABOUND, the love of many shall wax cold.'
Please, if you are able to, get out of the major cities now. These places will get worse and worse as we near the end. Ask God for guidance and He will lead you to a better place to live.
Israel Leaders Pushing for a Cashless Society (September 2013)
"The government on Tuesday authorized establishment of a committee that will examine ways to eliminate cash from the Israeli economy ... Cash is easily passed from individual to individual, and transactions using cash can take place without the tax man's supervision. Not so electronic transactions; with modern computers, banks can keep tabs on how much people deposit into their accounts and how much they withdraw, while credit card companies have an up to the second record of how much people spend."
The drive for a cashless society continues all around the world. And as we keep saying, Satan needs this to happen in order to be able to pressure people into taking the mark of the beast. If cash remains available, then people would be able to refuse the mark and still continue to "buy and sell". But as Revelation 13 confirms, those who refuse the mark will NOT be able to buy and sell. Hence the need for a cashless society!
"Two and a half years after the Fukashima tragedy Japan does not want to admit how serious it is, but it is obvious the drastic environmental implications are to follow ... the accident is worse than we thought and they have been leaking many tons of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean for almost two and a half years, this is a catastrophe."
The seas were already polluted with all the oil spills and general pollution dumped into the oceans. But now we have radioactive water pouring into the sea. And with this new phenomenon of 'red tide' which is killing fish by the millions, the oceans are surely becoming a dead zone!
This is one of the reasons why God's remnant church proclaims a health message and is largely a vegetarian church. God wants His people to be healthy so that they have clear minds and able bodies to stand firm against the deceptions and evils this world are going through and will yet go through. Please seek the truth friends, as time is running out. Jesus Christ is soon to return to reward His servants with eternal life, and those who rejected Him with punishment in the lake of fire and eternal death.
"Pope Francis also emphasized the need for unity among all Christian communities ... How much damage divisions among Christians, being partisan, narrow interests causes to the Church, Divisions among us, but also divisions among the communities: evangelical Christians, orthodox Christians, Catholic Christians, but why divided? We must try to bring about unity ... he spent roughly 40 minutes praying with an evangelical pastor before leaving his residence today where both prayed to seek unity among Christians ... Pray that the Lord gift us unity."
It's amazing that these people who protest, thinking they are rising up in revolution against the corrupt governments, are actually playing into Satan's hands of bringing about a "new world order". What is the one thing that comes out of chaos? The call for unity, peace and order. And that is Satan's plan today, to bring about unity through the Roman Catholic Church (the whore of Babylon). But God tells us in His Word to not unite with the world, or any government or any other false church/religion. But rather to be separate and to live according to His Word alone! (2 Corinthians 6:17; Matthew 4:4; Revelation 18:4).
We are living in spiritually perilous times friends. And we need to seek the Bible truth like never before, so that we will not fall for the final master deception that Satan is bringing to this world soon.
"The World Food Programme (WFP) has signed a three-year deal with payments giant Mastercard to introduce digital food to hunger-stricken areas of the globe. Rather than physically importing and then donating food in areas that need it most, the WFP aims to use mobile phones, smart cards, electronic vouchers and text messages to extend and improve its existing programmes that give cash to enable hungry people to buy food." (Link)
"Venezuela's most populated state is scheduled to begin a system of rationing, with consumers in Western Zulia being given electronic cards to limit their purchases." (Link)
"MasterCard is partnering with the UN World Food Programme (WPF) to promote the use of smart cards for the distribution of welfare benefits such as healthcare and education credits and food vouchers in Iraq." (Link)
We are really seeing a movement in technology now that we have never seen at any point in history before us. Interestingly, we are seeing the poorer nations moving into cashless societies with biometrics and smart cards. So just imagine how quickly the developed world could make that switch.
We are fast approaching the time when the mark of the beast can be enforced. These are end times friends, and we need to be prepared. How? By living every day in the footsteps of Christ Jesus. Give your all to Him today!
"In terms of budget, personnel, and global reach, the Roman Catholic Church rivals the United Nations, and as far as having a track record of promoting tolerance and peace without resorting to force, it has no equal among states ... In the eleventh century, the faith splintered into the Western Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church. The sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation further damaged Christian unity. Today, however, global Christianity is poised to heal these rifts and emerge stronger than ever."
This just shows that the Council on Foreign Relations is another tool that Satan is using to unite the world with the Roman Catholic Church (Babylon)
Let's look at the lies in this article. They say that the Catholic Church has a record of promoting tolerance and peace without resorting to force. And yet history shows us that the Roman Catholic Church FORCED people to accept her false doctrines or suffer torture and death. The Catholic Church had millions of faithful servants of Jesus Christ tortured and killed throughout history. The article also says that the Protestant reformation was a bad thing. And yet God was behind the reformation to separate His people from the apostate church of Rome, so that they could serve God in spirit and truth, rather than go along with the lifeless traditions and false doctrines of Rome.
The world is saying "unite". But God is calling ... COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE
"Turkish protests intensify as unions join forces with demonstrators ... Thousands of striking workers joined the Turkish protests, calling for Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to step down as mass protests against his rule intensify." (LINK)
"Brazil transport protest descends into violence and vandalism ... Students protest against the rise in public bus and subway fare from 3 reais to 3.20 reais (1.50 USD) in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on June 7, 2013." (LINK)
"Greeks protest austerity cuts ... Doctors, health workers and supporting unions gather outside the ministry of health in Athens during a nationwide strike on June 7, 2013." (LINK)
"Spain and Portugal protest austerity ... Several thousand people take part in the "People united against the troika" international protest in Madrid on June 1, 2013, where they gathered expressing anger at government cuts." (LINK)
"Rival rallies in London over Woolwich killing ... Some 150 far-right protesters have rallied in London on Saturday over the gruesome murder of a British soldier. The demonstration was confronted by a larger counter-protest by an anti-racism group. Police had to intervene to separate the rival rallies." (LINK)
Friends, we are nearing the stage where Satan will be ready to deceive the world and enforce the mark of the beast. Do you believe in Christ Jesus? Do you follow in His footsteps? If you haven't accepted Jesus Christ yet, then now is the time. If you have accepted Him then please devote your life to studying, praying and humble Christian service. We are living in perilous times and only Christ Jesus can save us.
The Boom of Biometrics (June 2013)
"New technology can identify you by unique traits in your eyes, your voice, and your gait. Is there cause for alarm? ... In the last decade there has been a boom in more advanced biometric technology, allowing people to be identified, and sometimes remotely tracked, by their voices, the irises of their eyes, the geometry of their faces, and the way they walk ... The age of terrorism has created enormous interest in - and lowered resistance to - identifying and tracking individuals in a very precise way."
This is a sure sign of the last days. Prophecy told us that knowledge would increase, and this new technology is needed to successfully enforce the mark of the beast, so that anyone who refuses to go along with the mark, then their finances can be cut off with the press of a button and they can also be tracked. One good reason to get out of the cities and find a home in the country.
Desecration of the 7th Day Sabbath in Jerusalem (June 2013)
"New shopping complex called a breakthrough that will revolutionize Saturdays ... It's incredibly rare to see so many people publicly desecrating the Sabbath in Jerusalem, where most businesses shut down at sunset on Friday and streets are quiet until nightfall the following day. Secular Jerusalemites have hailed the new complex at the station as a breakthrough that will revolutionize Saturdays in Israel's capital city."
This is part of Satan's end time plan friends. We have seen the TRUE seventh day sabbath of the Lord (our Saturday) desecrated by virtually the whole world, with Sunday (false sabbath) being lifted up in it's place. And now, not only do we see Sunday being pushed as a day of rest in Israel. We are seeing the true sabbath day being desecrated in order to condition the Jews to go along with the mark of the beast when it is enforced.
The Roman Catholic Church (antichrist) is pushing for Sunday laws to be enforced, and we can see the world starting to come around to that idea. The problem is, Sunday is Satan's counterfeit sabbath. And when the Sunday law is enforced, anyone who goes along with it, will receive the mark of the beast and end up being lost and cast into the lake of fire at the end. Please seek the TRUTH! So that you will be guarded against Satan's deceptions.
"Today US military operations are involved in scores of countries across all the five continents. The US military is the world's largest landlord, with significant military facilities in nations around the world ... Some of these are vast, such as the Al Udeid Air Force Base in Qatar, the forward headquarters of the United States Central Command, which has recently been expanded to accommodate up to 10,000 troops and 120 aircraft."
Revelation 13 revealed that a nation (earth beast) would arise, being "lamb like" at the start. Meaning it would be a nation built upon Christian foundations. But then this nation would end up "speaking like a dragon". In other words, it would end up doing Satan's work.
Revelation 13 also reveals that this nation would be THE nation to assert it's power and influence upon the rest of the world and cause the world to take the mark of the Roman Papal beast. As we can see today, there is no other nation that fits the earth beast like America does. And please don't believe those who say that America's power and influence is coming to an end. America will continue to have the major power share of the world until Jesus Christ returns. See here for support of that.
"Nigeria's National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) will issue 13m MasterCard-branded and payment-enabled national ID smart cards as part of a pilot programme. This programme is the largest ever roll-out of a formal electronic payment solution in Nigeria." (source)
"Rwandans and Kenyans could soon start travelling to either country using their national identity cards, immigration officials have said." (source)
"Rwanda: Cashless Economy Drive Gains Momentum ... As part of the central bank's effort to promote a cashless economy, commercial banks are being advised to encourage mobile banking platforms." (source)
"Ghana: Achieving cashless society is possible ... Mr Simon Dornoo, Managing Director of Ghana Commercial Bank (GCB), said he envisions a society where goods and services are paid for by cards, electronic fund transfers or online rather than with cash or cheque." (source)
The systems will soon be in place all over the world, and then we will see the fulfillment of Revelation 13, in which America will cause the whole world to take the mark of the beast. And those of us who refuse will have our "electronic only" finances cut off, stopping us from being able to "buy or sell".
What will it be like to have nothing during that time? Not even access to any food? I don't know, but I know this for sure. My faith in Christ Jesus WILL get me through it! Do you have faith in Jesus? If so, keep building upon it. If not, it's time to believe.
"Massive US-led military drills began in the Persian Gulf in a second such show of maritime might in under a year ... The Pentagon is directing the maneuvers, which will reportedly involve 35 ships, 18 unmanned submarines and unmanned aircraft. The 40 other countries participating in the drills have not yet been named."
America is leading the way in taking control of the world, just as Bible prophecy said it would in Revelation 13. In the 13th chapter of Revelation we find an earth beast (America) causing the world to take the mark of the sea beast (Roman Catholic Papacy). This they will do with the support of all the other "United Nations".
The world is being readied for Satan's final deception. Have you accepted Christ Jesus and decided to follow Him? Are you seeking the truth? Jesus and His truth is the only way to stop us being deceived in these last days. Please seek the truth!
"US honey bees have been dying by the tens of millions, with annual death rates of about 30 percent. With fewer bees to pollinate fruits and vegetables each year, 'beemageddon' may soon cause the collapse of the agriculture industry ... Since 2006, about 10 million bee hives have been lost ... There are currently about 2.5 million honey bee colonies in the US, which is a drastic decrease from the 6 million that existed in 1947."
This world is dying friends due to the sins of mankind and the Spirit of God is being withdrawn. Our only hope now is submitting our lives to Christ Jesus. Please repent and turn from your sins and follow the Lord Jesus Christ. Then you will have a future. A future of peace and joy, with no pain or suffering ever.
"Between 2010 and 2012, more than a quarter of a million people died in the famine in Somalia - in part because the world was too slow to react, the U.N. humanitarian coordinator for Somalia said Thursday. Half of the 258,000 Somalis who died in the famine were children younger than 5."
All this suffering will be over one day soon when Jesus Christ returns at the second coming. Please give your life over to Him today.
441 Shootings and 100 Deaths in Chicago This Year (April 2013)
"There have been 441 shootings and 100 homicides in the city of Chicago so far this year, according to a blog that tracks crime in Chicago ... In 2012, the blog shows that 2,670 individuals were shot in Chicago. That was up 20 percent from 2,217 in 2011."
The major cities are no longer safe places to live, and they are certainly no place for God's people to dwell in, or for children to be raised up in. The cities have degraded morally during the past few decades. Wickedness reigns in them now and the "love of many is waxing cold", as God's Word said it would.
Friend, we are living in the last days and the mark of the beast is to be enforced one day soon. If you live in a major city and you have an opportunity to leave, then please leave before the beast's mark is enforced. Put your trust in Christ Jesus and let Him guide you to a safe place to live, away from all the wickedness of the cities.
"You're about to go to heaven and live to tell about it. And your story will become the subject of scientific research ... Your life flashes before you like an epic movie. The End. You leave your body and look down at it. People are bending over it. Someone is sobbing uncontrollably ... You follow it through a tunnel to a place much more vividly real and spectacular than the banner Sunday afternoon you just left behind. You are sure you have arrived in the hereafter. Weeks later, you wake up to the steady beeps of an EKG monitor next to your hospital bed."
This mainstream Christian teaching of the immortality of the soul is massive deception that Satan is using and will use even more in the last days. These "near death experiences" are NOT from God, but from the enemy to deceive the masses. This false doctrine has also given rise to spiritualism around the world.
When we die, we know NOTHING .. (Ecclesiastes 9:5,10)
That is the basic Bible truth. The confusion comes about with regards to what our "soul" is. But there needs to be no confusion as the Bible is very clear. When we were created we were NOT GIVEN a soul. Instead we BECAME living souls with God's breath in us (See Genesis 2:7). And when we die, we return to the dust from where we were made (see Genesis 3:19). And there we dwell until the resurrection at the second coming (See Isaiah 26:19).
Please seek THE TRUTH
"The survey, which was conducted by Public Policy Polling, asked a sample of American voters about a number of conspiracy theories ... The study revealed that 13 percent of respondents thought Obama was the antichrist, while another 13% were not sure - and so were at least appeared to be open to the possibility that he might be."
This survey basically shows that AT LEAST one in four Americans embrace "popular beliefs" rather than Bible truth and that at least one in four have no idea about the "Protestant" roots of America. The Bible clearly reveals that the antichrist is not just one man, but a religious system. And that antichrist religious system is the Roman Catholic Papacy. This is what God revealed to the Protestant reformers and this is why Protestants fled to America - to escape the persecution dished out by the antichrist popes ("THE MAN OF SIN").
"Pope Francis urged members of all religions and those belonging to no church on Wednesday to unite to defend justice, peace and the environment ... Francis, elected a week ago as the first non-European pope in 1,300 years, met leaders of non-Catholic Christian religions such as Orthodox, Anglicans, Lutherans and Methodists, and others including Jews, Muslims, Buddhists and Hindus."
To you who have ears to hear. God does not call us to unite with other faiths and unbelievers. The TRUE followers of Jesus Christ are to "be separate" (2 Corinthians 6:17; Amos 3:3)
This is the deceptive ecumenical movement that is spearheaded by the Vatican. And Bible prophecy reveals in Daniel 7, Revelation 13 and Revelation 17-18 that the Roman Catholic Church is that "anti"-Christ system (anti = IN PLACE OF) which has put itself IN PLACE OF Christ on earth, and would deceive the world into taking it's mark. The whole world is beginning to "wonder" after the Vatican "beast" and soon the "kings of the earth" will give their power unto the Vatican beast, which will plunge the world back into the days of Papal persecution (and worse).
Please seek the truth and trust in Christ Jesus, who ALONE is your salvation!
We're Getting Closer Than Ever To Paying With Our Fingerprints (February 2013)
"If you've ever wanted to pay for groceries with the touch of a finger, look no further than the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Rapid City, South Dakota ... the school's campus recently began testing fingerprint purchasing technology that allows students to buy goods with their fingerprint."
As we have said many times. We are living in an age like no other in all of history before us. This is one of the many ways that we will be "buying and selling" in the near future. And those of us who refuse the coming mark of the beast will have our transactions blocked by the simple press of a button.
But do not make the same mistake that the majority of people make with regards to the mark of the beast. This technology like microchips and biometric ID's etc, CANNOT be the mark of the beast. Because the beast's mark is all to do with WORSHIP, not some lifeless piece of material. Sure this new technology will HELP ENFORCE the mark, but in of itself it cannot be the mark.
See here for the truth about the coming mark of the beast.
"Predicted population increases in this century can be expected to translate into more people dying from earthquakes. There will be more individual earthquakes with very large death tolls as well as more people dying during earthquakes than ever before, according to a newly published study led by U.S. Geological Survey engineering geologist Thomas L. Holzer."
When Jesus said in Matthew 24 that there would be earthquakes, He was saying it in the context of labour pains of a woman, which once they start, begin to grow more frequent and intense as time goes on. And this is exactly what is happening with earthquakes and disasters. The "beginning of sorrows" (labour pains) started a long time ago, and this world is now nearing the point of "delivery" (the second coming of Christ). Have you submitted to Christ Jesus yet? He is our only hope in this world.
Our Children Don't Want to Live Under the New World Order (February 2013)
"In 1950, American children said the biggest influences on their lives were 1-Parents; 2-Church; 3-Teachers; 4-Peers; 5-Media; Today that has changed to 1-Peers; 2-Media; 3-Parents; 4-Teachers; 5-Church; ... Suicide is now the second leading cause of death in United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and many countries of Western Europe. Russia, Vietnam and India are experiencing similar increases ... The hopelessness spreading across the country and planet is approaching epidemic levels. But what would you expect when the Satanists, we call the NWO, are running the planet. The cesspool that now defines our planet is the result of living in a world with largely no morals and no spirituality."
I know this is an opinion article, but there is a number of things it confirms with regards to end time Bible prophecy. First of all, this is what happens to society and the world, when the world turns away from the law of God and rejects Christ Jesus. Second, this is further evidence of the stage we are in history. We are living in a time like no other in history before us, and this generation, we believe, will see the return of Christ Jesus. Third, there is a growing movement inside and outside Christianity to restore America and the world to "moral living" and some sort of "spirituality". And that movement WILL gain control one day soon, which will produce the fulfillment of Revelation 13, where the earth beast (America) will cause the world to "worship" (or give allegiance to) the sea beast (Papal Rome), in a bid to restore this world to "morality" and peace.
Don't get us wrong. We desparately desire the people of this world to turn to Christ Jesus, in whom they will find salvation. But end time prophecy confirms that America and the Vatican (with support from other nations) will end up enforcing a "moral law" which will in fact go against at least one of God's commandments and end up being the mark of the beast. PLEASE SEEK THE TRUTH! (John 8:32)
Tens of Thousands of TONS of Fish Turn up Dead in Iceland (February 2013)
"Masses of dead herring have been found in Kolgrafafjordur fjord for the second time this winter, raising concerns about Iceland's fishery ... The Morgunbladid newspaper estimated the value of the 10,000 tons of fish found dead this week at 1.25 billion kronur ($9.8 million). An even larger number of fish died in December."
There are mass animal deaths happening all around the world today. And we were told in Hosea 4:3 that this would happen in the last days.
Hosea 4:3 ...'Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.'
Multiple Paths Lead To One World Government (January 2013)
"That we live in a world of "Agenda Politics" is absolutely clear. Governments come and go, but the agenda never changes ... One of the most obvious of the agendas that our politicians are pushing is that of "World Government". The British Parliament is now subservient to so many foreign bodies and institutions it is hard to keep count."
Revelation 17:12-13 ...'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.'
The "kings of the earth" are the leaders of the world's nations who will be deceived into giving their power to "the beast" (Papal Church in Rome). Did you know that the Vatican has diplomatic relations with virtually every nation on earth? Soon Satan will perform signs and wonders which will deceive the leaders into handing their power over to the Papacy.
Then through a union between America (earth beast of Revelation 13) and the Papacy (sea beast of Revelation 13) the mark of the beast (mark of the Roman Catholic Church) will be enforced around the world.
Revelation 13:16 ...'And he [earth beast] causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads.'
Why Does Bill Gates Hate Cash? (January 2013)
"He hates it because of its effect on people at the opposite end of the wealth spectrum - the world's poor and unbanked. The Better Than Cash Alliance, which was founded last September and is partially financed by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, hosted a breakfast at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Speakers from the Philippines, Colombia, and the U.S., among other countries, made the case for why electronic transactions are better than cash payments."
Bible prophecy is just amazing! For a long time now, God's people, through what Bible prophecy says have been preaching that a cashless society is on it's way. Why? Because the beast of Revelation 13 needs to enforce it's mark, and in order to do it successfully and stop those who refuse it from "buying and selling", then cash needs to be replaced with a purely electronic monetary system. And this is what those in control are really pushing for now around the world. And they are inventing more and more reasons why it should be done.
The time is soon upon us people. Are you seeking the truth? as only the truth will set you free (John 8:32) from the great end time deception that is coming upon this world. And have you given your life over to Christ Jesus? He is the ONLY way out!
"In 2012, the weather in Britain spun off its rails in a chaotic concoction of drought, deluge and flooding. China is enduring its coldest winter in nearly 30 years. Brazil is in the grip of a dreadful heat spell. Eastern Russia is so freezing - minus 50 degrees Fahrenheit, and counting. Bush fires are raging across Australia, fueled by a record-shattering heat wave. Pakistan was inundated by unexpected flooding in September. A vicious storm bringing rain, snow and floods just struck the Middle East. And in the United States, scientists confirmed this week what people could have figured out simply by going outside: last year was the hottest since records began."
Why does this world seem to be spinning out of control? Extreme weather, threatening wars and conflicts, economic disaster, loss of food crops, increase in sin, etc, etc. Why? Because the restraining Spirit of God is being withdrawn from this world, as we get nearer and nearer to the end. Friend, there is only one way out of this and only one hope for the future, and that is to give your life to Christ Jesus today. Will you do it? I hope so, as Christ is our only protection for the coming storm.
December 21st Doomsday Hysteria Grips Russia (December 2012)
"Doomsday hysteria has gripped Russia and some of its neighbors. Travel agencies are selling tours to either heaven or hell and people are stocking up on food and fuel."
The only thing that these false prophecies accomplish is that when they fail, they cause the people of the world to turn away from end time prophecy all together. Including TRUE Bible end time prophecy.
Satan knows his time is short and fast running out. Therefore he is pushing all these false end of the world scenarios, including the Harold Camping one in 2011, to turn as many people away from the truth as possible. As Satan knows the greatest weapon in these last days is the TRUTH! Which is also why he is pushing all these end of the world movies in Hollywood.
The truth is, the world IS coming to an end. But we do not know the day or the hour when Christ Jesus is to return. But we can know when it is near from the Biblical signs that we have been given. And more importantly, we need to know the truth about the final events, so that we don't get caught up in Satan's last great deception.
"As the remnants of Hurricane Sandy dissipate over northern Canada, the full scale of the damage left in her wake is becoming apparent. At least 56 people in the U.S. were killed and another 67 in the Caribbean. Cost estimates have ranged as high as $60 billion so far." (Link)
"The death toll in Guatemala's worst earthquake since 1976 has risen to 52 people, and many of the 22 still missing are not expected to be found alive, said President Otto Perez Molina. He said the powerful 7.4-magnitude quake that hit on Wednesday morning off the Pacific coast affected up to 1.2m people as it shook nearly the entire country." (Link)
There doesn't seem to be a day that goes by now without some sort of disaster happening in the world.
"The latest executive order emanating from the White House now claims the power to freeze all bank accounts and stop any related financial transactions that a "sanctioned person" may own or try to perform - all in the name of "Iran Sanctions" ... the order says that if an individual is declared by the president, the secretary of state, or the secretary of the treasury to be a "sanctioned person", he (or she) will be unable to obtain access to his accounts."
Do you see the amazing fulfillment of Bible prophecy here? Revelation 13 says that anyone who refuses to accept the mark of the beast will have "their accounts frozen", so that they will no longer be able to "buy or sell".
Friends, the systems are being put in place now as we speak to enable the enforcement of the beast's mark. And anyone who refuses to accept this mark of the Papacy will be seen as "terrorists" or "trouble makers". And with the world's desperate attempt to bring peace, no matter what, anyone who is seen not to unite with this world movement, will be regarded as the enemy. But we are to do God's will, rather than follow the world.
In Paris, Thousands of demonstrators marched Sunday to denounce austerity measures ... Link
In Germany, 40,000 people across 40 Cities protested to demand a more equal society ... Link
Greece and Spain were both rocked by giant protests and riots ... Link
In Portugal, Thousands protested on Saturday against austerity ... Link
Luke 21:25-27 ...'And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.'
This world is fast approaching a tipping point, and Satan is getting this world into a position where he can perform his "signs and lying wonders" (2 Thess. 2:9) so as to deceive the whole world into taking the mark of the beast. Brothers and sisters, and anyone who is willing to hear! Please heed the warnings from God and turn from your sins. And submit yourselves to your Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
"The temperature at Parana, Brazil spiked to 108 Degrees F (42.1 C) before the storm hit, breaking not only winter, but summer heat records for Southern Brazil ... lightning strikes numbered over 300,000 in four days in Rio Grande do Sul, which reported two million without power ... a foot of rain was estimated, collapsing a bridge ... Huge hailstones punched holes in roofs ... Thousands of homes were damaged in southern Brazil ... less than 10 days later, a low pressure system has pulled up extreme cold from Antarctica bringin snow and temperatures below freezing (with wind chills as low as -30 C!)" (Translated page)
We are getting more and more extreme freak weather events around the world now. This world is being shaken like never before, and as we near the end of time, things will unfortunately only get worse. So our only hope for the future is through Christ Jesus our Saviour. Give your life to Him today and you will secure a place in heaven for eternity!
France Set to Ban "Mother" and "Father" to Legalize Gay Marriage (September 2012)
"The words "mother" and "father" are set to be stripped from official documents in France, under controversial plans to redefine marriage ... Francois Hollande, the French President, pledged to introduce same-sex marriage in his manifesto."
We are living in a world where homosexuality has become the "norm". And governments all around the world today are legalizing same-sex marriage. As we keep stating over and over again, we are living in a time like no other throughout history. And the things that are happening in this world today were foretold by Christ Jesus and written down in the Bible.
Luke 17:26-28 ...'And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man ... Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot.'
And what was rife in the days of Lot, in Sodom and Gomorrha? Homosexuality!
Jude 1:7 ...'Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example.'
What happened to Sodom and Gomorrha? It was destroyed by fire from God. And as the above verse confirms, it was an example of what will happen to this world in the last days. Those who continue to live in sin and reject the Word of God will one day soon be destroyed by fire from God. It's time to turn to Christ Jesus and turn away from our sins. Time is running out, and God us giving us PLENTY of warning signs.
"A rally in the Greek capital turned violent when protesters in Syntagma Square lobbed Molotov cocktails at police ... Around 70,000 people, gathered in front of the parliament for the country's biggest anti-austerity protest since the new government came to power."
"Riot police clash with protesters as they have ringed the Spanish parliament in Madrid where thousands gather for a march against austerity tagged "Occupy Congress." (Link)
Violence has gripped this world now. Whether it's war, uprisings, gangs or protesting, there is violence at every turn. And the major cities are certainly no safe place to live anymore. Jesus said that just as in the days of Noah, when violence filled the earth, so would the earth be the same just before He returned at the second coming. And we are seeing this fulfilled in the news everyday, right across the globe.
Indonesia Advances with Biometric ID Card for all its Citizens (September 2012)
"Indonesia is spending $600 million on a project to give 172 million residents a national identity card that will be used for a wide range of purposes, including proving identity for voter registration, passport issuance, tax and financial matters, and much more."
Not so long ago, India announced its groundbreaking biometric identity scheme for all its citizens, and now Indonesia are doing the same. Will other countries follow suit? Of course they will, because Bible prophecy says that ALL nations will be forced to take the mark of the beast, and in order for this to happen, cash needs to be done away with and replaced with an electronic form of payment, in the form of an all-in-one "identity card". This way, "buying and selling" can be blocked at the press of a button for all those who refuse to take the mark. By the way, this ID card is NOT the mark of the beast. It's purely a means to help enforce the mark. Please see here for the Bible truth about the mark.
And look how quickly this is being rolled out ... "the mission is to register and de-dupe 172 million citizen records, and distribute highly-secure cards in just two years." (Link). Technology has certainly increased at a rapid pace and if these cards can be rolled out this quick in poor countries, how quick do you think it can be implemented in developed countries?
Things are moving along quickly now and the final events will soon be upon us. We are surely living in a time like no other in the whole of history. This generation is the very first to be in a position where the mark of the beast can be successfully enforced.
"An armada of US and British naval power is massing in the Persian Gulf in the belief that Israel is considering a pre-emptive strike against Iran's covert nuclear weapons programme ... Battleships, aircraft carriers, minesweepers and submarines from 25 nations are converging on the strategically important Strait of Hormuz in an unprecedented show of force as Israel and Iran move towards the brink of war"
What will become of this tension in the Middle East? Will world war III erupt, like many are saying will happen? Only time will tell. But one thing we are sure of is that we are now living in a day where "war and rumours of war" has become part of our society and is an everyday occurrence. The "pangs" are getting more and more intense all the time.
We are expecting a BIG event to happen soon, whether a war, or "terrorist" attack, or natural disaster, or a combination of them. Which will then bring on the final stage of this world and the final sign of the last days, which is the mark of the beast.
Jesus Christ is now our only safety and only hope for the future.
Sweden Not Far From Being a Cashless Society (September 2012)
"With just three per cent of all financial transactions involving cash, country moves to eliminate physical legal tender."
Students of Bible prophecy have known this was coming for a long time. How? Because Revelation 13 reveals that those who refuse the mark of the beast will not be able to buy and sell. And there is one thing that needs to happen to fulfill this prophecy, which is to get rid of cash and replace our monetary system with a purely electronic form of payment. This way, those in control will be able to press a button and block our ability to buy and sell.
Things are moving on now. We have economies failing around the world, which will help bring about a reform to have a more singular worldwide monetary system. And there is a great push to abolish cash and replace it with an electronic only system. Bible prophecy is coming alive!!
"The Federal Bureau of Investigation has reached a milestone in the development of their Next Generation Identification (NGI) program and is now implementing the intelligence database in unidentified locales across the country ... The NGI Program Office mission is to reduce terrorist and criminal activities by improving and expanding biometric identification."
Daniel 12:4 ...'even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.'
Now this might be touted as a good and necessary thing to combat "terrorists" and criminals. But ultimately, this will be used to track those of us who refuse to take the mark of the beast (see here for more about the mark). All the moves that are being made around the world today ... big brother technology, cashless systems, ecumenism, globalization, are all Satan's doing, to ready the world for the great final deception.
The technology is being put in place all around the world ready for the enforcement of the beast's mark. The economies are failing and we will soon wave goodbye to cash, so that a purely electronic form of payment can be introduced, which will help in stopping God's people who refuse the mark from "buying and selling" (Revelation 13). Our ONLY hope is JESUS CHRIST. Give your life to Him today and you too can have hope beyond all this madness!
Earthquake in China Kills 80 and Injures 730 (September 2012)
"At least 80 people are now known to have died in a series of earthquakes in south-western China, as rescuers struggle to reach remote areas ... More than 730 people were injured after the quakes hit Yunnan and Guizhou provinces on Friday, state media say."
In Matthew 24:8, Jesus said that the beginning of the world troubles would be the "beginning of sorrows", which started not long after Christ's day. The word "sorrows" means "birth pangs". So Christ likened the signs with child birth. The more you see the signs, the closer you are to "delivery" (second coming).
In the past 7 days, there have been 160 Earthquakes of Magnitude 4.0 and greater around the world. And in Costa Rica alone, there have been over 500 shockwaves that followed their big earthquake just the other day. And this is happening all the time now. So the "pangs" are getting more and more frequent now, and we are soon to see the great day of the Lord.
And remember, we are not just basing this on earthquakes. The "pangs" include all the other troubles around the world - extreme weather, typhoons, hurricanes, wars, economic crisis, lawlessness, uprisings, animal deaths, pollution, disease, etc, etc. The signs are clear for all to see.
2013 Will be a Year of Crisis? (September 2012)
"Prediction: 2013 will be a year of serious global crisis. That crisis is predictable, and in fact has already begun ... The crisis originates in this summer's extreme weather. Almost 80 percent of the continental United States experienced drought conditions. Russia and Australia experienced drought as well"
As if there isn't enough crisis in the world today, with wars, natural disasters, economies collapsing, increase in lawlessness. We now have this terrible situation of failed crops due to extreme weather, which is bringing about a food crisis, which can escalate into much more trouble around the world. Crops are failing all around the world today. America, Russia, Pakistan and India are facing huge losses in crops due to either drought or flooding.
And this all plays into the end time game for Satan. What does he want? He wants a world in such a mess and the people to become so full of fear and dependant on government, so that when the "solution" (mark of the beast, SEE HERE) for all this trouble is given, the people will accept it with open arms, so that they can continue to "buy and sell" (Revelation 13) and live in "peace".
It's time to surrender your life to Christ Jesus, because He is the only One who can give you TRUE HOPE. The "hope" that the leaders of this world give is only a false, temporary hope. But the hope that comes from the Lord Jesus is EVERLASTING! Don't put your trust in this world and it's leaders. Put your trust in Christ Jesus today and you will find everlasting life!
"The American Preppers Network started as a social media website in 2009 with about 100 hits a day and has since grown about a million individual visitors a month, Martin said. Visitors there discuss concerns about recent events in the news, such as fires in the western United States, rising food prices, access to oil and economic instability, he said."
We are not just talking about Christians here who believe that the world will end one day soon. We are talking about ordinary worldly people who do not know about the "end time signs". But they see the mess that the world is in and they can see that it is all going to come to a head some day soon.
The problem is, they are preparing in the wrong way. There is only one way we can truly prepare for what is to come upon this world, and that is to give our all to Christ Jesus, and trust that He will protect us in the time of great trouble to come. It's no good putting our trust in our own abilities or resources. We must put our trust in our Lord and Saviour.
"Rains that are almost biblical, heat waves that don't end, tornadoes that strike in savage swarms, there's been a change in the weather lately. What's going on?."
More and more people are asking that question these days - "WHAT's GOING ON?". Extreme weather is becoming more and more frequent. Natural disasters, wars, economic trouble, uprisings, lawlessness. These are all the signs of the end of the world which the Bible predicted would happen. And as we draw nearer to the end, things will get even worse.
And there is only one hope - Jesus Christ. He is the only one who can save us and give us a brighter future. Without Him there is no future, other than death and destruction!
"Iranians turned their efforts from rescue to relief Sunday after twin earthquakes that killed more than 300 people, trying to provide medical care for more than 2,000 injured and shelter and aid for thousands left homeless ... The quakes hit in a sparsely populated region, but entire villages were sent crumbling to the ground. Many others were partially damaged."
Jesus said in Matthew 24 that one of the signs of the times would be earthquakes in diverse places. And as we near the end, as the "birth pangs" increase. So it is true that calamities like this will increase.
"As global starvation spreads, charities warn that the total number of severely malnourished children is also rising ... For the first time in recent history, humanitarian organisations have had to respond to three serious food crises - in West Africa, Yemen and East Africa - in the past 12 months."
We are experiencing so many signs of the last days around the world now and Jesus said that famine would be one of the major signs (Matthew 24:7). And yet there is so much food that is wasted in the western world, which could feed the hungry. So sad, and a great sin for us to over eat and waste food when there are so many who are starving to death.
"A University of Connecticut researcher and his team have discovered that a species of tiny aquatic organism prominent in harmful algal blooms sometimes called "red tide" is even deadlier than first thought, with potential consequences for entire marine food chains."
The seven last plagues are not being poured out yet, but we can see the connection with red tide and the 2nd and 3rd plagues ... Revelation 16:3-4 ...'And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea. And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.'
"Chicago is in the grips of a deadly gang war. At least 275 people have been killed in the city so far this year and many more have been shot, many of them innocent bystanders to the gang violence. Among the latest victims were 12 and 13-year-old girls shot Tuesday night."
Matthew 24:12 ...'And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.'
Things are progressively getting worse in this world, and as we approach the very last days and the Spirit of God is withdrawn, the full fury of Satan will be unleashed - especially upon God's people. So we must be ready for the time of trouble ahead by giving our all for Christ Jesus today. And if God gives you opportunity, then get yourself and your family out of the big cities.
This is a sure sign that we are living in the last days. Things have got so bad in this world, that even many non believers are proclaiming an "end of the world" scenario. The problem is, nothing can be done about it now, because the end IS coming soon and God is not going to put up with this world for much longer. Man has just about destroyed this beautiful planet that God created for us. Sin prevails in this dark world and the wrath of God is soon to fall upon us.
It's just a shame that the majority of people do not know TRUE meaning of why this world is in such a state and why it is coming to and end. Jesus is coming soon friends. It's time to get ready!
A commission is being launched in Europe with the aim of making electronic identities for each person, which will incorporate electronic transactions across the European countries. Of course, they will put forward good reasons for doing this kind of thing. But this is what Satan is pushing for, through the beast system, so that the beast's mark can be enforced more successfully.
These kind of electronic ID cards will ultimately be linked back to a database where all your personal information is stored that can be accessed in a moment by those in control. These devices will be a requirement for us to be able to make any transactions and your ability to "buy and sell" could be blocked at the press of a button.
But please don't think that this kind of device will be the mark of the beast. This is not the beast's mark. These electronic devices will be used to help enforce the mark, but in of themselves, they cannot be the mark. As the mark can only be received by going against one or more of God's commandments. It's an issue of worship and who we give our allegiance to. Not just receiving a physical mark.
What this news shows though is that we are heading for the day soon when the mark can be enforced.
We are getting more and more signs concerning the mark of the beast all the time. The major hurdle that has needed to be overcome with regards to the enforcement of the mark of the beast is CASH and the fact that the different countries of the world use different currencies. This has partly been overcome in Europe with the Euro. But Satan needs the whole world to get rid of cash and introduce a more unified electronic monetary system to successfully introduce and enforce the beast's mark. And what has happened worldwide to help bring about a change? The economic crisis!
The introduction of a single world currency would greatly simplify the job of preventing those who refuse the mark from "buying and selling". And with the financial crisis that is happening around the globe, the people will be more willing to accept anything to solve the problem. The technology is there, and we are not far away from this becoming a reality.
The Vatican Calls for a New Global Financial Authority (October 2011)
Amid the financial crisis that has gripped the world, pope Benedict issues a document calling for "reform" in the financial and monetary systems and proclaiming the need for a world political and financial authority.
Now those of us who study Bible prophecy with open eyes can see the amazing prophetic symbol behind this statement. In Revelation 13 we have two beasts. Those beasts represent the kingdoms of the Vatican (sea beast) and America (earth beast). And Revelation 13 tells us that America is going to cause the world to receive the mark of the (Roman Catholic) beast, stopping anyone who refuses the mark from "buying and selling". So what will help in enforcing this mark of the beast and stopping people from accessing their finances if they refuse it? A WORLD FINANCIAL AUTHORITY! And not only that, we are now in a position to do away with cash and replace it with purely electronic forms of payment. So one day soon, the powers that be will only need to press a button to stop someone from "buying and selling".
New (Secular) Book Reveals America Will Dominate the World (October 2011)
This is the kind of news story that I just love. Many people these days love to spout off that America is doomed and China "owns" the US. But Bible prophecy in Revelation 13 states that America will be the main driving force during the end times, and that it will be America who causes the world to take the mark of the beast.
God's remnant church have been preaching for over 100 years that America will be the dominant nation in the last days. Why? Because Bible prophecy says so. And what you are seeing in the world today with all the financial troubles is just a cover for what Satan is really doing behind the scenes.
In this news article, "BusinessInsider" state that it's just not true that China owns America (financially), and now A Hong Kong based economist has brought out a book claiming that it is actually the other way around ... America owns China! ... And wait for this prophetic statement from a secular source ... "the United States will rise up and dominate in the coming decade". The book is entitled "The American Phoenix".
