Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of Aug 6 - 12, 2017

How's your weather today?  Does it seem to be just a bit out of the ordinary compared to times past? Parts of Europe were burning under the noon-day sun as a heatwave brought +40C, (100+F), temperatures to much of the continent.  Meanwhile in Asia, flash floods from torrential rains are the news makers in that region of the world.  Here in North America, much of the East has seen strong summer storms leaving destruction in its wake from hailstorms and thunderstorms.  Out West, from California to British Columbia, the skies are filled with smoke as vast areas are literally burning up from wildfires.  Here in our home province of British Columbia, the wildfires have consumed 625,000 hectares or 1.5 million acres this summer.  That equates to the size of the province of Prince Edward Island, (the smallest province in Canada).

As an aside, the temperatures have remained in the low to mid 30's Celsius, (90 - 95 F), under a pall of thick smoke with no rain here in Williams Lake.  Had there been no smoke to block the sun, temperatures would have been much warmer, (likely closer to 40C or 100F).  An area of several hundred square kilometers to the west of our city has been put under evacuation order as fires continue to rage west of us.  The largest fire in this province is only 80 km west of Williams Lake and has consumed 180,000 hectares, (445,000 acres).  No wonder we are so smokey these past few weeks.

Truly it would seem that God has allowed nature to become a judgement upon the lands of this world as the world continue to become ever more godless and ever more depraved.

The LORD will strike you with wasting disease, with fever and inflammation, with scorching heat and drought, with blight and mildew, which will plague you until you perish. The sky over your head will be bronze, the ground beneath you iron. The LORD will turn the rain of your country into dust and powder; it will come down from the skies until you are destroyed. Deuteronomy 28:22-24 NIV

Speaking of depravity, just check out the articles at the bottom of this blog entry. They all pertain to indoctrinating little children into a plethora of sexual sin.  And we wonder why this world of ours is convulsing under a barrage of weather events?

Can we be any closer to World War 3 than we are now?   U.S. President, Donald Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jung-un have certainly ratcheted up the war rumors.  As of this writing we await to see just what America will do with regards to Kim Jun-uns threats to fire missiles at Guam.  Should he do so will that result in a major confrontation on the Korean peninsula?  Will that spread to other geo-political hot spots around the world?  Stay tuned.

Such an event as a nuclear confrontation would sink the global economy.  Already there are prognosticators warning that something wicked this way comes within the next year as the fires of disaster peculate under the surface of the current global economic system.  It is our belief that such a disaster would precipitate the necessary events to bring about the future new economic world order of the Antichrist.

There is just so much more going on in the world from a prophetic standpoint.  We suggest you peruse the articles below to get a feel for yourself as to the closeness of the times.  Briefly we can see the continue rush towards the technology of the 'Mark of the Beast' both from the standpoint of corrupting the image of God, (transhumanism), and the future buy/sell economic system of Antichrist.  Not only is the world experiencing major weather upheavals but also is seeing some disconcerting increases in both earthquake and volcanic activity which has those watching the West Coast of North America, (including Yellowstone), growing greatly concerned.

Three very important articles listed below show us the following:  The continued build-up of the Gog/Magog alliance, (Ezekiel 38/39), with Iran as one of the heads;  The continued build-up of the pan-European army which we believe will be the armies of Antichrist, (Daniel 11);  And finally, the continued push towards the establishment of a global world government, (Daniel 7, Revelation 17).  An attendee at a recent Vatican conference is advocating for world government including the establishment of an Earth Constitution, a Global Council and a Planetary Court.  Wow!!

And finally Christian and Jews continue to see increasing persecution and marginalization while Islam continues to become the darling of the left-wing progressives, (which continues to baffle us). As the bible states, what is good will become evil and what is evil will become good, (Isaiah 5:20). So very true in this, the last days of this dispensation of time.

So until next week, keep looking up, (unless you happen to see an incoming missile...then don't look up...run).  Your redemption draws so very close.

God Bless, stay safe.

Vatican to host another population control conference with pro-abortion speakers
John Schellnhuber is founding director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and chair of the German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU). He is considered one of the world’s leading climate scientists and one of the strongest advocates of the theory that the earth is undergoing catastrophic global warming. Schellnhuber is also known for his advocacy of a one-world government. In order to avoid his catastrophic predictions for unchecked climate change, Schellnhuber proposes the need for indispensable forms of world governance – or in his own words, a “global democratic society” – to be organized within the framework of the United Nations. Schellnhuber says in his 2013 article “Expanding the Democracy Universe” that “global democracy might be organized around three core activities, namely (i) an Earth Constitution; (ii) a Global Council; and (iii) a Planetary Court.”

'Historic' Baal arch condemned as 'ancient evil manifesting itself'
Jonathan Cahn, who rocked American Christianity with his New York Times best-seller “The Harbinger” and produced a revolutionary new kind of devotional with “The Book of Mysteries,” told WND he finds the developments ominous. “When looking at this phenomenon, we have to understand the nature of the god involved,” he explained. “Baal was the god that Israel turned to after it turned away from the God of Scripture. He was the substitute god, the replacement god, the anti-God god – the god of their turning away, their fall. Baal was the god of the apostasy.” Cahn argues what happened to ancient Israel is now happening to the post-Christian West. “We are now witnessing a massive apostasy taking place all over Western civilization, a large scale falling away from the God of Scripture,” he said. “So to see the sign of Baal manifesting throughout the modern world is stunning. It is the sign of a civilization rapidly turning away from its faith and falling away from the knowledge of God.”

Return of the strongman: 'It's a perfect storm against democracy right now'
The proportion of Americans who think it would be a good thing or very good thing for the “army to rule” has risen from one in 16 in 1995, to one in six today. A similar increase has been seen in those who favour “a strong leader who doesn’t have to bother with parliament and elections.” The trend is most pronounced among people born after 1980.

Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of Aug 1 - 5, 2017

We're back and finally with some time to peruse the news of the day as we search for items of interest related to end-times bible prophecy. Things continue to build along the same lines as they were the last time we posted a news blog entry a month ago. 

The drum beats of war continue to pound as the United States seems ready to engage North Korea in a new Korean War, which would ultimately spread across borders to include South Korea, Japan, China and perhaps Russia. Speaking of China, the tensions between China and India are heating up with the potential for the two largest nations on earth, (population wise). ready to go at each other over a small parcel of Himalayan land. And never forget that the Middle-East is always on the edge of conflict.

A couple interesting articles regarding Pope Francis and the new French President, Emmanuel Macron.  Seems some within the Catholic Church are not exactly enamored with the current Pope and even consider him as 'paving the way for the Antichrist'.  Strong words, but we would agree.  As for the future Antichrist, of course nobody knows who that individual will be, but it seems reasonable to expect that person to come upon the scene not unlike the new French President, (or the former U.S. President, Barack Obama, for that matter), as some sort of visionary messiah type.  Macron would seem to have visions of grandeur with aspirations of taking the position as leader of the free world. Heck, why not one step further and take the position as the leader of the entire world?  Keep an eye on this fellow....if we are as close to the end as we think, then the future Antichrist has to be on the scene right now and gradually building his power base and influence, just as Macron is doing.

Israeli Jews seem to be getting on board with this Third Temple idea and are now marching and demanding that something be done to get one built.  Truth be told, there have been plans in place for several years to build the new Temple and all the implements of worship are ready to go.  Even the priests are in training to serve at this new temple.

China is not only saber rattling for war, but is also making its presence felt across the Middle-East looking to involve itself in peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.  China is a good bet to fulfill the Kings of the East which bible prophecy talks about, and is looking to build a trade route across Europe to the Middle-East and beyond.  Part of this trade route would include Chinese military bases.  Very interesting.  Consider that the bible talks about the Kings of the East marching across the vastness of distances from the Orient to the Middle-East near the end of the Tribulation. Perhaps along a newly created 'One Belt, One Road' thoroughfare? 

People and businesses seem to be lining up to be among the first to get chipped.  And there may come a day when those that choose not to get chipped will simply not be in line for certain jobs.  Hey that sounds a lot like the future Mark of the Beast which will lock out those from buying and selling that refuse to take the mark.  In the same vein, there continues to be built the future surveillance/police state grid which will keep a close eyes on you.  Everything will be known about you right down to your eye color.  The Antichrist and his cohorts will find this grid much to their liking as they use it to hunt down and eliminate, (behead), those that choose to worship the true God rather than the Antichrist.

Scientists continue to mess with the genetics of creation in their dubious efforts to bring about a superior species of mankind, (Humanity 2.0).  Creating artificial DNA, creating artificial life and cutting/pasting human DNA is bringing us closer to the day when mankind will have seriously corrupted the image of God, (God's creation of Man).   Might this be an element of the future 'Mark of the Beast' and why once taken a person becomes immediately condemned?  If you are no longer an image of God, you are no longer redeemable by God....thus condemned as were the prodigy of the Fallen Angels during the days of Noah.

Speaking of the Fallen Angels, (who we believe were the Ancient Aliens of old), the world is being set up for a grand delusion where once again Aliens will appear among us and will delude mankind into worshiping the Antichrist as God. Of course these Aliens are non other than demonic entities from another dimension, (so don't be fooled).

In other news, we see that this globe of ours continues to convulse with increased earthquake and volcanic activity, (the world groans).  We also see coming signs in the Heavens as a once in a lifetime solar eclipse will race across America in a few short days, along with a once in a lifetime meteor shower event.  Maybe not the signs in the sun, moon and stars that bible prophecy was talking about, but very interesting non-the-less.  And then there is Europe which has lost it's collective mind as it ushers in hordes of new Islamic immigrants who are slowly but surely turning Europe into Eurabia. All those liberal ideals that Europe was known for will soon fall by the wayside as Europe becomes ever more Islamic and Sharia law takes hold.  

So all in all another interesting week of headlines which indicate the closeness of the hour.  It's good to be back, and thank you for bearing with us as we bounced around our province looking to escape the flames of fire.  Speaking of flames of fire, if you aren't saved yet, now is the time of salvation. The redeemed of the Lord will spend eternity with the God of creation in a remarkable place, while those that aren't redeemed will not at all like the place they are consigned to, (the fires of Hell).  Don't delay, choose whom you will serve today.

Until next week, keep looking up.

A new normal for Williams Lake - Welcome Back

Well that was interesting.  Being told to leave your home immediately and not sure when you will be allowed to return was stressful, frightening, worrisome and perhaps even a little bit exhilarating. The fires are not completely out, but the threat to our city has subsided....at least for now.  Hot weather is in the forecast through to the middle of August with temperatures in the mid 30's Celsius,  (mid 90's F), and not a drop of rain to be seen.  One small spark, or another windstorm could easily stir things up again.

As we sit here in our small quite corner of the world where life is much the same each and every day, and the horrible stories we read about are taking place thousands of miles away, we often equate it to the "Shire" of the J.R. Tolkien 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy.  While evil grew exponentially in the land of Mordor, the good folks far away in the Shire were completely unaware and complacent to the dangers of the growing evil that could potentially consume their idyllic and peaceful tranquility.

In watching the events of the Last Days ramp up across the globe, its too easy to assume that it will never touch our peaceful coexistence.  Or perhaps it will only be something that happens during the coming Tribulation when we will all be snatched out of here anyways, (the Rapture of the Church). However that would be wrong thinking.  As the nations of the world continue to reject the God of Creation, (and that would include our own country here in Canada), God's hand of protection is removed and events begin to happen.  Whether it's war, drought, floods, pestilence, or in our case, wild-fires, the birth-pangs of the Last Days are becoming well pronounced.

There is one thing we have learned through all of this, and that is to be prepared, (both spiritually and in common sense preparation).   For several years we have been building up stores of food and water along with basic provisions and supplies that we could fall back on in the case of an emergency. That forethought of preparation paid dividends as we loaded up the trailer with the items that would become necessary for our two week sojourn in the wilderness, (camping at a Provincial campground). From food, to water, from batteries to toilet paper, all was pre-loaded in the trailer and when the evacuation order was announced, we were ready to go.

As for the spiritual end of things, we just knew that our God would look after our needs and would see us through to the end.  As it turned out, we survived very nicely as did our home and everything we own.  God had made sure we traveled safely to and from our home away from home, and that we would have a home to return to when all was said and done.  There was no point in worrying about it all, we just left it in God's very capable hands.

So it's great to be home as we slowly get back into the swing of things. Places of work, places to shop and critical infrastructure, (like hospitals), are all coming to life again as we settle down to life in the Shire once more.  We thank you for your many prayers through these events, and we continue to pray for some liquid sunshine, (rain and more rain), to fall and calm the fire threat across our fair province. We also thank God for the many wonderful firefighters and first responders who fought to keep the fires out of our community, and who diligently ensured the safety of our City.

God Bless and keep looking up for we know our redemption draws very near.

A new normal for Williams Lake
Williams Lake is slowly starting to fill up with people again. Residents are returning to the lakecity one day after officials announced their intention to lift the evacuation order for the city and many surrounding rural areas and replace it with an alert. As the evacuees return, so are some of the many services of the urban centre.

B.C. wildfire crews prepare for scorching August
B.C. is on the cusp of a heat wave, officials say, with several new and aggressive wildfires reported over the past few days. The south coast, which has largely escaped the negative effects of the wildfire season, is expected to be hit with smoke on Tuesday and Wednesday. “We have at least a month of this left, if not longer,” chief fire information officer Kevin Skrepnek told reporters on Monday. “August is historically one of our busiest times.”

Evacuation order lifted for Williams Lake

After nearly two weeks of living in a camper trailer and motel rooms, we are finally home after the authorities lifted the evacuation order for our fair city and the surrounding area.  We thank the Lord for looking after our City as the fires stayed on the perimeter and did not touch any homes, (including ours). We also very much thank all the firefighting crews that kept those fires at bay.

So now it will take a few days to get back into the normality of life, including getting back to work. We are still under an evacuation alert and all could go sideways again this summer, but we will pray that God will not let that happen again.

Thank you for all your prayers, and we hope to be back blogging the news of the week very shortly. 

Evacuation order lifted for Williams Lake
Thousands of Williams Lake and area residents can pack their bags and come home. Officials from the City of Williams Lake, Cariboo Regional District and Williams Lake Indian Band made the announcement that several of the area’s evacuation orders due to wildfire in the City of Williams Lake, Sugarcane and surrounding areas in the Cariboo Regional District have been rescinded, effective immediately (Thursday, July 27.)

B.C. Wildfire: Entire city and area of Williams Lake ordered evacuated

B.C. Wildfire: Entire city and area of Williams Lake ordered evacuated
The provincial wildfire crisis took a dramatic turn for the worse Saturday evening as the entire city of Williams Lake and its surrounding area were ordered evacuated. With the main highway, Hwy. 97, cut just to the north of the city by firefighting efforts and far to the south by the Ashcroft-Cache Creek fire, the order meant thousands were heading south on Hwy. 97, then cutting east on the only other highway out, Hwy. 24, a secondary highway. From the junction with Hwy. 5 near Little Fort, evacuees were told to head south of Kamloops. The timing of the evacuation, ordered just before 6 p.m., was driven by fears that fires could shortly cut that last route out of Williams Lake.

Greetings all,

Just a brief update to let everyone know that we are all fine, although now living out of a motel many miles from home as we have been ordered out of our town due to the current wildfire threat, (see article link above).

Some 20,000+ people including I and my family were given the order to leave Williams Lake, Saturday evening at 6:00 pm.  The highway was like a parking lot for many hours with a steady stream of traffic all exiting the town, but everyone vacated the city in good order from what we hear,

So here we sit waiting for news on the status of our city and just how the fight goes against these very large fires.  Still no rain, and more warm temperatures in the days ahead according to recent weather forecasts.

Thank you for your many prayers, and we ask that you continue to pray for the safety of the many fire fighters and first responders currently on the scene,  We also look for rain and much of it for that will be the only thing that will be able to end the threat from these fires on a permanent basis.

Thank you and may God bless you all,
Duane, Shelley, and family

Update:  Saturday, July21

Greetings All,

We are still under evacuation order which means we are still living out of a 5th wheel trailer in a Provincial Campground several hours away from our home town.  The fires threatening our town are 8,000 hectares and 13,000 hectares in size with the closest fire still 7 kilometres from the City.  (For our American visitors that's over 16,000 acres, 26,000 acres and about 4 miles).

While the fires may not be of threat to our town as yet, the smoke is something horrible as the following article indicates:

There has been some rain but not nearly enough.  We pray for more.

Needless to say we will be camping for a while with short trips into a local town for shopping and the occasional update on this blog.

God bless all, and we look to be home soon.

Duane & Shelley

B.C. wildfires: No letup for crews battling central Interior blazes

In Canada:

B.C. wildfires: No letup for crews battling central Interior blazes

More evacuations in B.C. Interior as winds whip up flames

In America:

Raging wildfires across California force nearly 8,000 to evacuate: 'It was terrifying'

We will be unavailable over the foreseeable future in posting any blog entries due to a series of wildfires burning in our location.

We live in the central part of the Province of British Columbia, (Canada), which has seen a long stretch of very dry, hot weather this early summer resulting in tinder dry forests.  This past weekend, (Friday July 7), a brief lightning storm ignited a host of fires near several communities in our area, including the City of Williams Lake in which we live.

Close to 10,000 people have been evacuated from homes throughout central British Columbia including many families here in our home town.  Unfortunately many homes have been lost in the raging fires, but thus far, (by the grace of God), no lose of life.

My wife and I and our family members are alright, and we have not been given the order to leave our homes as yet. However we remain packed and ready to move out on a moments notice.

Needless to say, our concerns right now are with our community and in making preparations for any evacuation orders.  Therefore this blog site will remain on the back-burner, (forgive the pun), for the next little while.

Our former Pastor, now heading up a new church plant in the City of Williams Lake, posted an urgent request for our community, (and this would apply to all communities along the West Coast of North America, from California north to British Columbia), under the threat of wildfire.

We look to our God for answers to prayers and we know he is in control of everything including the storehouses of rain, (which we could use right about now).

He covers the sky with clouds; he supplies the earth with rain and makes grass grow on the hills. Psalm 147:8 NIV

Thank you for your prayers, and we hope to soon be back posting in the very near future.

Dear Friends of Mosaic Community,
Please be in prayer for the City of Williams Lake. There are major unconfined fires all over the Central Cariboo region. Many areas of Williams Lake have been evacuated and many other areas have been given evacuation warnings. The highway north and south of Williams Lake has been closed due to the fires and Williams Lake Airport is in danger of being overrun by a fire.

Please pray for:
- Safety for the firefighters and water water bomber and helicopters pilots that they would be safe in a very dangerous situation.
- The many families that have been evacuated and are in danger of losing their homes, livestock, and properties.
- That the local churches have an opportunity to show love and concern for our neighbours and city.

Thank you for joining with us in prayer at this time.

In the Lamb,
Dan Smith

Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of June 29 - July 6, 2017

Not much time this week, so we will post what we have.  We have included a few brief comments with some of the prophetic signs to help explain how this may be of significance for the future.

As always, keep looking up.  Things are getting interesting.

Prophecy Sign:  Rumors of Wars

The next Middle-East war? Hezbollah may risk everything in all-out fight with Israel
Someone like the new President of France will rise from among the nations of Europe and from the political world.  He will appear out of nowhere and the world will fall in love with him.  This person will ultimately become the Man of Sin, the Antichrist.

Prophecy Sign:  The Future False Prophet

The current Pope may be a little long in the tooth in becoming the future False Prophet, but he certainly can be one of Satan's own who is feverishly working towards the establishment of the future global false religious system that will point the world to the worship of the Antichrist.

Prophecy Sign:  Future riches of Israel - The 'Hook in the Jaw'?, (Ezekiel 38)

The enemies of Israel will gather together in the Last Days to 'take a great spoil' according to the Prophet Ezekiel.  Could that mean energy, (oil and natural gas)?  Israel has come into both in recent years, much to the chagrin of the Arab States.

Prophecy Sign:  Corrupting the Image, (Increased Knowledge) & the False Religious System

Interesting how these two articles come together.  They describe a time when mankind will find it necessary to corrupt the created image of God, (mankind), in order to survive.  This will be done by merging man with machine and will lead to a new religion of Transhumanism which will promise the end of death.  Sounds like the "Mark of the Beast" and the "False Global Religious System" to us. 

Merging humans with robots might be the only way to survive in the future
In a future dominated by AI, some are warning there will only be one way for humans to stay relevant: merging with machines

The Only Way Humankind Stops the Machines from Taking over Is Getting Religion
This choice is between different religions that offer escape from death. Transhumanism offers the materialist a religion through which to conquer death; other religions offer the same to those who have faith in gods other than technology.

Prophecy Sign:  Kingdom of Antichrist - Controlling the Message, (Revelation 13)

Think blogs and websites like the one you are presently on will be allowed to exist during the Kingdom of the Antichrist? Think again.  Likely it will be considered hate speech to point out who the Antichrist is and what the bible has to say about him.  Twitter, Facebook, Google and all else will do their level best to scrub the cyber world of any such contrarian viewpoints.
