A must watch video - The time of the end is near!! Are you ready?

And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. Luke 21:28 KJV





We are back. Time to be a watchman on the wall again!! (August 1, 2015)


Well it has been over 3 months, (May 5'15), since our last blog post which contained actual world news as it applied to bible prophecy.  With so much going on in the world of late, the time for us here at this blog to once again begin to stand on the wall to watch and warn is now upon us.

We will endeavor to post new material when and where we can, although perhaps not as frequently as in the past as there are health issues that have manifested themselves in the personal lives of those of us here at this blog.

We ask for your prayers for both health issues and for wisdom in directing and posting material to this blog.

God Bless, and keep looking up, for your redemption is drawing very near.

Blog Suspended for the summer



Well no bites on the Help Wanted call, so after some thought I've decided to suspend all activity on this blog for the summer.  I need a rest from even thinking about the blog and the daily searching through the couple dozen regular news web-sites that we visit each and every day.

Hopefully in the fall after a good long rest, I will feel rejuvenated enough to once again blog the news of the day as it relates to prophecy.  In the meantime there are a great many other websites out there doing essentially the same as we are, (some of the links are on our links sidebar).    

So have a great and safe summer.  Keep making a difference out there for the Kingdom of God, and keep looking up, because Jesus is coming back, (you can count on it).

Help Needed

HELP!!



As any of our long time visitors and readers may have noticed, this SignPosts of the Times Blog site is not nearly updated on a regular basis as it use to be.  There are a variety of reasons for this which include being busier on the home and work front, and just plain weariness of being up on the Wall as a Watchman scanning the prophetic signs each and every day.  It can, (and has), become more of a chore than a calling or charge.

That's where somebody out there can come to the rescue and bring life back into this website which was designed to be a place to help explain bible prophecy as it relates to the current events occurring all around us.

If there is anybody out there that would like to be part of this work, and you believe you have a very similar belief system as we do here at SignPosts, then why not drop us a line and let us know of your interest.  You may have some great ideas that would improve and add to what is already being done on this site.  Again we would like to hear of those ideas.

You can reach us at the following email address:  bambidear934@gmail.com

Only serious inquires will be considered.  Should no interest be shown, (we receive no response), then it may be necessary to shut down this website.

Thanks, and may God give direction to the right person to become a member of our team.

Prophecy Sign:  The armies of the Antichrist, Daniel 11:40-42


Germany pushes again for European army
Germany is again pressing for a European army to protect the continent at a time of rising international tensions. Defence minister Ursula von der Leyen last week spelled out her wishes for a continental force capable of swift reaction anywhere in the world.  Her comments came just two months after European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker expressed his wish for an army commanded by Brussels, saying it “would help us to build a common foreign and security policy, as well as jointly assume the responsibilities of Europe in the world”. Mrs von der Leyen, talking to her Dutch counterpart in The Hague, said international crises such as the Ebola outbreak and the swift advances by Islamic militant group Islamic State could have been countered better by a well-trained European army.

Biden: 'Path has already been paved' to Iranian bomb
Iran would have enough enriched uranium within three months to be able to make up to eight nuclear weapons if negotiations with the international community blow up, Vice President Joe Biden said late Thursday, noting that "the path has already been paved" for that outcome. Biden's remarks at a dinner for the Washington Institute for Near East Policy played off concerns by critics, including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, that the Obama administration is negotiating an agreement that paves the path for Iran to get a nuclear weapon. "Let's get something straight so we don't kid each other," Biden said. "They already have paved a path to a bomb's worth of material. Iran could get there now if they walked away in two to three months without a deal."

Prophecy Sign:  The regathering of the Jews to Israel at the end of days, Ezekiel 37:20-22


40 Percent Rise This Year in Global Immigration to Israel, Report Shows
A new report shows that Jewish immigration to Israel from around the world rose more than 40 percent in the first three months of 2015, the UK’s Guardian reported on Sunday. A total of 6,499 Jews arrived in Israel between January and March of this year, according to an interim report by the Jewish Agency for Israel. The vast majority of immigrants came from Europe, specifically Eastern Europe. 1,971 immigrants came from Ukraine to the Jewish state, the most of any country listed, marking a 215 percent rise from the same period last year. The number of Russian immigrants rose to 1,515, an almost 50 percent increase. French immigration to Israel rose by 11 percent to 1,413 while immigration from Britain saw a 43 percent rise to 166. Immigration from North America decreased by 7 percent with only 478 new arrivals between January and March.

Prophecy Sign:  Increasing numbers of earthquakes in diverse regions of the world, Matthew 24:7


Michigan, Texas, Mississippi, California, Idaho And Washington All Jolted By Significant Earthquakes
Did you know that Michigan was just hit by the worst earthquake that state has seen in more than 60 years?  In recent days, there has been a series of alarming earthquakes all over the United States.  Of course none of these earthquakes was anything like the massively powerful quake that just crippled the entire nation of Nepal, but many are concerned that these earthquakes could be a sign of what is to come.  All over the planet, seismic activity is increasing.  In fact, I recently wrote about how the number of volcanoes erupting right now is greater than the 20th century’s average for an entire year.  At the same time, the surface of the sun has become very, very quiet.  As you will see in this article, there are scientists that link the two.  It is believed that times of very low solar activity have something to do with a rise in seismic activity, and there is one scientist that is claiming that solar activity is declining faster “than at any time in the last 9300 years” right now.  So what does this mean for the future of our planet?

ISIS supporters are claiming on social media that the group is now in Rome. Catherine Herridge reported on “Happening Now” that social media accounts with known ties to ISIS are posting threatening images, alleging that the group has spread to Rome and is poised to attack. The images include handwritten notes with ISIS slogans and show the city of Rome in the background to prove the location. One tweet reads, “Now we act with photos in your street… soon we will act with our sharp knives…the future is not far away.”

‘Satanic’ group says anti-abortion regulations in Missouri violate their religious beliefs
Conservatives are increasingly citing their right to religious liberty to defend using state property to proselytize and disobey laws protecting women and LGBTQ people from discrimination. But those efforts are getting a little more complicated, thanks to a group of pranksters who claim to worship Satan. Whenever Christians erect Christian monuments on state property or distribute religious materials at public schools, the New York–based Satanic Temple is there doing its part, passing out satanic materials or erecting statues celebrating Satan. Now these expert trolls are tackling anti-abortion regulations, which they claim violate satanic religious beliefs; followers of the king of hell should be allowed to opt out of those regulations, they say.

Transhumanism: An Attempt To Use Technology To Turn Men Into Gods
Did you know that the word “transhuman” literally means “beyond human”?  All over the world, scientists and intellectuals are joining the transhumanism movement.  Those that adhere to this philosophy believe that the time has come for us to use technology to take control of our own evolution.  By doing so, they believe that we can give ourselves superhuman powers and radically extend our lifespans.  Right now, the most popular movie in America is “Avengers: Age of Ultron“, and in recent years we have watched films about “mutants” and “superheroes” become some of Hollywood’s biggest moneymakers.  But transhumanists believe that we will soon be able to literally turn ourselves into such superheroes as technology continues to increase at an exponential rate.  And once we have superhuman powers and superhuman intelligence, they are convinced that we will eradicate all sickness, disease, poverty and war.  Many of them actually believe that we will be able to achieve immortality and establish a utopia on Earth just a few decades from now.  In other words, we won’t need a “God” because we will have become our own gods.

Carter says Hamas leader committed to peace, Netanyahu not
Former US president Jimmy Carter called Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal a strong proponent of the peace process Saturday, and said he wasn’t meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu because it would be “a waste of time.” The president, who has been visiting Israel and the West Bank, met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas Saturday but didn’t meet with Netanyahu or President Reuven Rivlin. He told reporters that he didn’t ask to meet with Netanyahu or his government, and never has, because it would be a “waste of time.” He told Channel 2 in an interview broadcast Saturday that he requested to meet Rivlin, but the president’s office declined.

Prophecy Sign:  The coming global economic tsunami, (and new economic world order of the Antichrist), Revelation 17


Experts Are Warning That The 76 Trillion Dollar Global Bond Bubble Is About To Explode
Warren Buffett believes “that bonds are very overvalued“, and a recent survey of fund managers found that 80 percent of them are convinced that bonds have become “badly overvalued“.  The most famous bond expert on the planet, Bill Gross, recently confessed that he has a sense that the 35 year bull market in bonds is “ending” and he admitted that he is feeling “great unrest”.  Nobel Prize–winning economist Robert Shiller has added a new chapter to his bestselling book in which he argues that bond prices are “irrationally high”.  The global bond bubble has ballooned to more than 76 trillion dollars, and interest rates have never been lower in modern history.  In fact, 25 percent of all government bonds in Europe actually have a negative rate of return at this point.  There is literally nowhere for the bond market to go except for the other direction, and when this bull market turns into a bear it will create chaos and financial devastation all over the planet.

Prophecy Sign:  The future New Economic World Order - System of the Antichrist


Call for 'new world order' so emerging markets can shine
The overarching theme at the 2015 Asian-African Conference in Indonesia this week was the need for “a new economic world order”. The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) were roundly criticised for failing to deliver solutions for the global economy to alleviate poverty, distribute wealth and close the inequality gap. At the opening of the conference in Jakarta, Indonesian President Joko Widodo said the World Bank and the IMF are reluctant to recognise that the world has changed. He said Asian and African countries need to build a new global economic order that is open to emerging economic powers. “The view that the world’s economic problems can only be solved by the World Bank and the IMF is an outdated view. I am of the view that the management of the global economy cannot be left only to these international financial institutions,” said Widodo.

Guess What Happened The Last Time Bond Yields Crashed Like This?
If a major financial crisis was approaching, we would expect to see the “smart money” getting out of stocks and pouring into government bonds that are traditionally considered to be “safe” during a crisis.  This is called a “flight to safety” or a “flight to quality“.  In the past, when there has been a “flight to quality” we have seen yields for German government bonds and U.S. government bonds go way down.  As you will see below, this is exactly what we witnessed during the financial crisis of 2008.  U.S. and German bond yields plummeted as money from the stock market was dumped into bonds at a staggering pace.  Well, it is starting to happen again.  In recent months we have seen U.S. and German bond yields begin to plummet as the “smart money” moves out of the stock market.  So is this another sign that we are on the precipice of a significant financial panic?

Israel will strike Iran first to thwart nuclear attack
If Israel does decide to mount an attack against Iran, they will run a gauntlet – they will have to fly long distances, over hostile Syria, and other unfriendly countries. They will potentially face a massive counterattack from the growing American presence in the Persian Gulf. When they finally reach Iran, they will suffer even more casualties from the advanced Russian anti-aircraft systems, which will shortly be operational. And when a handful of Israeli aircraft finally reach their targets, the surviving Israeli warplanes will have to somehow inflict sufficient damage on heavily armoured nuclear facilities, some of which are buried hundreds of feet underground, to prevent them from being repaired. There is only one kind of bomb in Israel’s arsenal, which can fulfill this military requirement.

Is There a Slippery Slope from Prosthetics to Cyborgs?
The desire for self-enhancement—whether in physical, mental, or economic varieties—is a perennial feature of the human race, a desire only amplified by the millennial wave of techno-optimism that promises that if there’s a problem, there’s an app for that. Short of a mysterious halt in the natural progression of biotechnology, it’s almost certain that prosthetic systems will one day become advanced enough for recreational use—and more. A cyborg is technically defined as a organism that is deeply integrated with an intelligent machine, although in science fiction cyborgs are usually superhuman, not physical therapy patients. Under that definition, cyborgs don’t exist yet, but there’s no reason to rule out their emergence in the next century or two.

Bigger earthquake coming on Nepal's terrifying faults
Nepal faces larger and more deadly earthquakes, even after the magnitude-7.8 temblor that killed more than 5,000 people on Saturday. Earthquake experts say Saturday's Nepal earthquake did not release all of the pent-up seismic pressure in the region near Kathmandu. According to GPS monitoring and geologic studies, some 33 to 50 feet (10 to 15 meters) of motion may need to be released, said Eric Kirby, a geologist at Oregon State University. The earth jumped by about 10 feet (3 m) during the devastating April 25 quake, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. "The earthquakes in this region can be much, much larger," said Walter Szeliga, a geophysicist at Central Washington University.

WHO: Global Threat From Antibiotic Resistance Growing
The World Health Organization says an increasing number of infections are no longer treatable because of growing antimicrobial resistance, putting the lives of millions of people at risk. The WHO study finds no region in the world is prepared to combat this serious global threat.  Only one-quarter of the 133 countries has a comprehensive plan to fight resistance to antibiotics and other antimicrobial medicines. The survey also finds public awareness of the issue remains generally low and many people believe antibiotics are effective against viral infections.  It says this leads to antibiotics being used when they are not required or effective, which can lead to resistance.

Prophecy Sign:  The coming prophetic Middle-East War(s)


Former Commander: Next War With Hamas By End of 2015
Hamas is definitively preparing for another war against Israel, Brig. Gen. (res.) Zvika Fogel said Friday morning – hours after a rocket fired from Gaza struck the Sha’ar HaNegev region late Thursday night. “Rocket production continues,” Fogel, a former head of the IDF’s Southern Command, told Army Radio. He predicted another war by “the end of 2015 or early 2016.” Part of the problem, he indicated, is that Hamas is purposely neglecting its Palestinian Arab population, goading them into painting Israel as an even bigger scapegoat for their poverty and poor governance. “The population in the Gaza Strip since the operation [Op. Protective Edge – ed.] has been neglected, and pressure on Hamas is growing,” he noted.

Just within the past few days, one of the most dangerous volcanoes in Chile erupted for the first time in 42 years and the nation of Nepal was hit by the worst earthquake that it has seen in 80 years.  Even though the crust of the Earth seems to be shaking more violently than ever, most of the experts continue to assure us that what we are witnessing is “normal” behavior.  But the cold, hard numbers tell a very different story.  As I pointed out in a previous article, the number of volcanic eruptions that are happening right now is greater than the 20th century’s average for an entire year.  Our planet appears to be getting more unstable, and that is not good news for any of us.

In a word, the farmers are desperate.

According to its annual report released on Tuesday, 17,884 individuals were persecuted for their religious beliefs. Authorities detained nearly 3,000 dissidents and sentenced 1,274 people, compared to just 12 in 2013.

First Look: U.S. Dollar Substitute to Go Public on Oct 20th?
The International Monetary Fund is one of the most secretive and powerful organizations in the world. They monitor the financial health of more than 185 countries… they establish global money rules… and provide “bail-out” assistance to bankrupt nations. And on Oct 20th of this year, the IMF is expected to announce a reserve currency alternative to the U.S. dollar, which will send hundreds of billions of dollars moving around the world, literally overnight. According to Juan Zarate, who helped implement financial sanctions while serving in George W. Bush’s Treasury department, “Once the [other currency] becomes an alternative to the dollar, rules of the game begin to change.”

Prophecy Sign:  As it were in the days of Noah - Genetic manipulation


Scientists successfully genetically modify human embryos, allowing for editing of babies’ genes
Chinese scientists have successfully edited the genes of human embryos for the first time, confirming rumours that secret genetic experiments had been happening in the country and prompting fears that the discovery could lead to a new kind of eugenics. The researchers were able to successfully modify a specific gene responsible for a potentially fatal blood disorder. But they say that problems encountered during the testing mean that it is unlikely to be used more widely in the immediate future. The technique could one day be used to edit out fatal and destructive genetic diseases. But others worry that it is unethical and could wreak unknown havoc on the human gene pool.

Iran: New Nuke Deal Is ‘Not Acceptable’

Prophecy Sign:  The future prophetic Middle-East War(s)

How can the Obama administration possibly defend this mess of a framework deal they have with Iran??  A document not even signed which both sides dispute as to what it even means.  From the prospective of the Iranians they got everything they wanted, and if the Americans dispute that, then the deal is off.

The Iranians expect that they will continue to have a fully functional nuclear structure where all current facilities, including the massive Fordo underground nuclear installation, will remain intact. They are also demanding that once a permanent agreement is signed that all sanctions will be immediately lifted with no phase in time frame. And the Iranians are adamant that there will be no snap inspections of any of the Iranian nuclear sites.  In other words, the Iranians expect everything, including the kitchen sink, to be handed to them on a silver platter if only they sign a wee little piece of paper that Obama can wave up and down announcing 'peace, peace'

Meanwhile everybody with a brain in their head and not wearing rose colored glasses see this deal for what it is; a worthless and meaningless deal that will ultimately allow Iran to reach her nuclear goals and which will result in other nations in the Middle-East to go nuclear, (eg Saudi Arabia).

Let us pray that this so-called deal falls apart over the next weeks and that the current sanctions will remain in place and if need be, greatly stiffened.  No deal is far better than this stinker of a deal, and this is what Israel has been saying with great gusto for the last several months.

On the other hand, if Obama and his minions decide to sign off on this mess of a deal in the months to come then the Middle-East, and perhaps even other parts of the world, will be moved to the precipice of a great war. Not the war to end all wars, (Armageddon), but very likely the scenarios laid out in the chapters of the Old Testament writers, (Psalm 83, Gog/Magog - Ezekiel 38/39, Isaiah 17, Jeremiah 49).

Iran: New Nuke Deal Is ‘Not Acceptable’
Iran has described an agreement to curb its nuclear program as “not acceptable” days after the United States hailed the new framework deal. Following the announcement of a framework accord that the United States described as a major step in rolling back Iran’s nuclear work, leaders in Tehran began to accuse the Obama administration of lying about the deal’s parameters. The disagreement revolves around a White House fact sheet that outlined concessions Tehran agreed to after negotiations in Lausanne, Switzerland, last week. On Wednesday, Iran rejected most of the concessions it reportedly agreed to undertake. Top Iranian leaders are describing the framework as a “lie” and announced that international nuclear inspectors will not be permitted to enter any of its contested military sites. Iran also maintains that all of the Islamic Republic’s controversial nuclear work will continue under any deal—a claim that runs counter to White House claims.

Iran supreme leader: Nuclear framework no guarantee of deal
A framework nuclear deal reached with world powers last week is no guarantee a full agreement will be secured by the end of June, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Thursday. “What has been done so far does not guarantee an agreement, nor its contents, nor even that the negotiations will continue to the end,” Khamenei, who has the final word on all matters of state, said on his official website. In the first comments by the supreme leader since the Lausanne framework agreement, an evasive Khamenei said he was “neither for it or against it.” The supreme leader also addressed the discrepancies between the US and Iranian accounts of the terms of the framework agreement, accusing the White House of lying. 

Ayatollah Rejects Core Element of Nuclear Deal: Inspections
In his keenly-awaited reaction to the provisional nuclear deal announced in Switzerland a week ago, Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Thursday attacked a key pillar of the entire deal being promoted by the Obama administration – the question of inspections of suspect sites in Iran.

Iran will only agree to a final nuclear accord with six major powers if all sanctions imposed on the country over its disputed nuclear work are lifted, President Hassan Rouhani said in a televised speech on Thursday. "We will not sign any deal unless all sanctions are lifted on the same day ... We want a win-win deal for all parties involved in the nuclear talks," Rouhani said.

Persecution Is Coming to the American, (and Western), Church

Prophecy Sign:  Increasing hatred and persecution of Christians

If you are a born again Christians who takes the word of God literally and believes that God has declared certain sexual activities as sinful, (eg homosexuality), then you can expect a whole lot of flack to come flying your way should you choose to express those opinions on a public stage.

"If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. John 15:18-19 NIV

Persecution Is Coming to the American Church
We’ve witnessed a dramatic shift in the culture in just the last 10 years in the United States. There’s hardly a moral tenet of Western civilization that has been left unscathed by the Progressive warriors who seek to blur the lines between Right and Wrong. Someone can now stand in the town square and proclaim that 2+2 = 5  and no one will look askance at him because truth is said to be fluid and evolving. Who is to say his equation is wrong? We’ve seen an emerging — and virulent —  strain of intolerance and bigotry in recent years directed at Christians who hold to the traditional, orthodox teachings of the faith, and there’s more bubbling up from beneath the surface of our once predominantly Christian nation. The mayhem we witnessed in Indiana this past week is just the tip of the iceberg

Franklin Graham Warns 'Ugly, Anti-Christian Bias and Intolerance' Is Changing America 'From the Inside Out' in Easter Message
Evangelical preacher the Rev. Franklin Graham said in an Easter Sunday message that Christians around the world continue facing higher levels of persecution and violence, and warned that "ugly, anti-Christian bias and intolerance" is changing America. "Today, untold millions of Christians around the world are celebrating the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And millions in many countries risk their freedom and — their very lives — to worship Him and claim His Name. Even under the threat of imprisonment, they faithfully follow, like pastor Saeed Abidini and scores of others," Graham said, referring to the imprisoned Christian pastor and U.S. citizen in Iran.
