United States hit by a series of Earthquakes

Do you think perhaps God is trying to tell the Americans something? Would it be perhaps, he's a little upset over the Obama administrations growing animosity towards Israel and the Jewish people?

Within the last 48 hours, earthquakes great and small shook all over America. From a 6.3 magnitude earthquake near Alaska, to several small earthquakes in the Virginias and Arkansas.

Memo to President Barack Obama and his government: Smarten up. God is giving you a warning shot across your bow. Keep crossing him at your own peril.

Turkey Boosts Ties with Lebanon, Syria and Iran

Once an Israeli ally, Turkey is moving at warp speed towards shedding its western proclivities, and fast forwarding towards becoming just another Islamic enemy of the Jewish state. Just as bible prophecy said they would do.

"also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops--the many nations with you." Ezekiel 38:6 NIV (Togarmah was an ancient region now occupied by Turkey).

Mideast nearing 'explosion,' Jordan's Abdullah says

While war seems only weeks or months away in the Middle-East, God could have other plans that we aren't privy too. Prepare for war, but please pray for peace, that saner heads would prevail.

Obama to call world summit if Mideast peace talks fail

The world is pre-occupied with the issue of peace in the middle-east, as the bible said it would be in the end-days:
"I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem." Zechariah 12:2 NIV

While admirable in their attempts to resolve the issue of peace in the middle-east, it will never happen by man's hands. In fact the bible says that those that try to resolve this issue will be cut to pieces
"On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves." Zechariah 12:3 NIV

Israel will never allow itself to go back to the indefensible borders of pre 1967. To do so would be suicide for the Jewish state. Israel knows that the Arab nations simply want Israel gone, and a new Palestinian state in its place. As well, Israel will never relinquish control of East Jerusalem to…

Does Israel stand alone?

The current United States administration under President Barack Obama is becoming increasingly more billigerent towards Israel, and in particular, its Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. While the Obama administration talks up a good storm with regards to supporting the Jewish Nation, actions speak louder than words.

Recent articles indicate that the Obama team is attempting to destabilize Netanyahu's hold on power, with the hope that a more left leaning administration would fill the gap in Israel's leadership. The hope is that the new leadership would be more willing to carve up Jerusalem and acquiesce to other Palestinian demands, in the name of peace.

The bible warns any nation looking to carve up the land he has given to the Jewish people, to watch out, you will be judged by God.

"And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are g…

Lost Jewish tribe 'found in Zimbabwe'

First a long lost Jewish tribe found in the far East, and now another group found in Zimbabwe. God said that in the last days, he would gather all the Jewish people to the land he gave unto them.

The National Biometric ID Card: The Mark of the Beast?

Here is a very interesting article by Constitutional attorney and author John W. Whitehead, regarding the United States consideration of a new biometric I.D. card. This new card quite likely would lead to a national database, and the I.D. card would become required to function as a citizen of the U.S, said Mr. Whitehead. The card could also be included with a RFID chip.

Incidentally, some in the mainstream media are now pushing the benefits of this new card, and as well, some are calling for all illegal immigrants in the U.S. to be implanted with microchips.

Thus far, no such calls for new I.D. cards are being called for in Canada. However that would change immediately should the U.S. adopt this system.

Europe debt crisis widens

The world is spiraling out of control economically; Don't be fooled by our recent upturn. The world is carrying so much debt, (and that debt is held globally), that should one country fall, the rest will tubble afterwards.

As one article contained here says: "Greece was pushed to the brink of a financial abyss and started dragging another eurozone country - Portugal - down with it Tuesday, fueling fears of a continent-wide debt meltdown."
And another article read: "Greece plunged deeper into financial turmoil last night after its government bonds were rated as junk by financial markets. The Portuguese government debt also took a hammering after panic spread that a Mediterranean virus of insolvency and bad debts would infect the rest of Europe."

The Bible is very clear that an economic collapse will occur as part of end-time events: "In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!" Revelation 18:17 This event could literally occur, as the…

Bilderbergs/Trilateral Commission and the One World Government

Not sure who the Bilderbergers are, or what the Trilateral Commission is? While their own websites may say that they are simply a group of private citizens who seek to "help think through common challenges and leadership responsibilities in the wider world" Many investigative journalists find these groups to be much more sinister. Those journalists paint these groups as nothing more than wealthy elites seeking to implement a system of world governance on the rest of us. Check out this article on their recent activities:

Iran, Syria, Hizballah gear up to provoke summer war

Wow, these articles are scary. You may not have heard anything about this growing international crisis brewing in the Middle-East. But then our local "fluff" current affairs media, have no idea about much of anything these days.

Even if you are indifferent to the idea of Christ's imminent return, this situation should still make you sit up and take notice. Given the world's economic predicament, if this region blows up into full-scale war, it will have an enormous impact on this remainder of the world. Oil prices would sky-rocket, causing food prices to rise as well as causing food shortages.

Be prepared. Make sure you will be able to look after your family in the event that this situation explodes. By the way, read Psalms 83 for more information on this impending war.

Six volcanoes that could shut down the world

We have mentioned before, how some scientists are concerned that there may be more volcanos showing signs of life. Here is an article regarding the most dangerous of these volcanic threats.

Information on the timing of the Rapture

Are Christians taken off this planet prior to, in the middle, or after the Tribulation? Many different view-points and interpretations exist within the Church.

If you are unsure of what you believe, and are looking for some information, this article may help shed some light on the issue:

http://www.bible-prophecy-today.com/2010/04/timing-of-rapture.html#axzz0mMXK73zT

More Volcanos around the world are coming to life.

Earthquakes are increasing in size and numbers, (see previous blog entries), and now Volcanos are coming to life, (Iceland, Italy, Guatemala). Makes you wonder, what on earth is happening? Well the bible paints a very scary picture, fore-telling of a series of apocalyptic events to occur on this planet during the Tribulation period.

"And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;" Revelation 6:12

Are we now in the early stages of those events? Makes you wonder.

Lost Hebrew tribe heads home

On of the more compelling end-time prophetic events that we have seen and continue to see fulfilled in our lifetime is that of the return of the Jewish people to the land of Israel.

"In that day the Lord will reach out his hand a second time to reclaim the remnant that is left of his people from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Upper Egypt, from Cush, from Elam, from Babylonia, from Hamath and from the islands of the sea. He will raise a banner for the nations and gather the exiles of Israel; he will assemble the scattered people of Judah from the four quarters of the earth." Isaiah 11:11-12 NIV

This is convincing evidence that we are indeed living in the last days:

Hunger forces mass exodus in parched Niger

Jesus told his disciples that one of the signs prior to his return to this earth would be devastating food shortages and famine.

"For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places." Matthew 24:7

"....And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:8

Syrian-Turkish Joint Army Drill Intensifies Threat to Israel

More confirmation of bible prophecy comes with this article that shows the growing alliances between former Israel ally, Turkey, and some of the more radical Muslim nations such as Syria and Iran.

The Bible clearly identifies Togarmah, (Togarmah is the name for the ancient territory now primarily occupied by Turkey), as part of an alliance of nations that will attempt to destory Israel in a coming war. (Ezekiel 38 & 39)

"Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee." Ezekiel 38:6

Another weekend, more Earthquakes

Two large earthquakes struck this weekend along the infamous "ring of fire". The first was a 6.0 earthquake which struck a group of islands in Indonesia. The second earthquake hit the Taiwan coast and measured 6.0. There now have been 22 earthquakes this year with a magnitude of 6.0 or greater, (source USGS).

Earthquakes, and more of them. One of the signs Jesus said to watch for.

Tensions continue to increase in the Middle-East

War will come in the Middle-East. The Bible is pretty clear about that. One of the first wars that many students of bible prophecy see happening, is that which is mentioned in Psalms 83. The battle features a confederacy of Muslim states coming against the Jewish state with the sole purpose of wiping it out:
They say, "Come, let us wipe out their nation; let Israel's name be mentioned no more!" Psalms 83:5

Recent news indicates the major players are now falling into lock-step, as this war quickly approaches. Jordanian media are now casting doubt on Jewish history in the Land of Israel. In addition, Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit referred to Israel as an "enemy" during a press conference in Beirut on Saturday. And finally, Syria threatened to "send Israel back to the prehistoric times if the Jewish state attacked Syria, in any upcoming conflicts.

Many prognosticators are now predicting, war could break out in the Middle-East as soon as this summer…

North Korea torpedoed South's navy ship

With so much talk recently about the Mid-East situation and the potential for war as soon as this summer, many people forget about another powderkeg that could explode into fullscale war. That being the Koreas who have had an ongoing uneasy truce since the Korean Conflict of the 1950's. With North Korea reputed to have nuclear armaments, this region has the potential to trigger World War 3.

One of the major signs of the end of times is that of "wars and rumors of wars" Matthew 24:7

"Mark of the beast" idea back on the table

We've mentioned before that there is support in the United States for a national ID card that would contain an individuals biometric information, (fingerprints, iris scans, etc.). and all information contained in a national database.

Concerns are being raised that the card could also include Radio Frequency Identification, (RFID), Tags which would allow the U.S. government to track people.

Former President, Ronald Reagan, refered to the cards as "The mark of the beast". The nation of India has already begun a program whereby all 1.2 billion of its citizens will be issued such ID cards.

Police State Study Ranks U.S. As 6th Worst In The World

A 2008 report titled "The Electronic Police State", ranked the United Kingdom and the United States fifth and sixth respectively on a global index in terms of "how aggressively they monitor their populations electronically". Only China, North Korea, Belarus and Russia where ranked ahead of those two Western nations. Canada ranked 29th.

Keep in mind this report is two years old, and the growth in electronic monitoring has only grown that much more. Big Brother is watching you, (especially if you live in the U.S or U.K).

Iceland volcano eruption could last months

Now that Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull Volcano has seemingly quited down, scientists are now turning their concerns to another Iceland Volcano know as Katla. As one of the articles below noted: "The potential eruption of Iceland's volcano Katla could send the world, including the USA, into an extended deep freeze". There are already major concerns around the world about potential food shortages later this year. Should an eruption as described in these articles occur, it could through the world into chaos. http://content.usatoday.com/communities/sciencefair/post/2010/04/iceland-volcano-eruption-could-last-months/1 http://www.csmonitor.com/Science/2010/0418/Iceland-s-Eyjafjallajoekull-volcano-is-nothing-to-Angry-Sister-Katla

Utah earthquakes leading up to volcanic action?

There is a super-volcano in the North Western United States located in Yellowstone National Park. Scientists are becoming concerned that recent increased earthquake activity in the Mountain West region of the U.S. may be signaling that the "big one", in this case the Yellowstone super-volcano, is coming back to life. Such an eruption, if it ever occured, would be hundreds if not thousands of times bigger than the Mount St. Helens eruption or the recent Iceland Volcano.

POLICE: LET US SEDATE SUSPECTS

Britain, which is already one of the most surveilled nations on the planet, is at it again. This time the British Police state is looking to use speed cameras which communicate with each other by satellite. Using global positioning satellitites and plate recognitioning software, police would be able to track a vehicle for miles.

At the same time, British police are also asking for the power to order "dangerous" suspects be injected with a sedative to make them more compliant and calm. Just what would be considered "dangerous" behaviour is not clearly defined in the article.

One can see a future scenario whereupon a "suspected criminal of the state - (a Christian perhaps?)", is tracked by satellite surveillance and upon arrest, sedated and imprisioned. Scary!!

Web-Bot predictions for 2010

While we don't equate secular and pagan prophecies with that of the Bible, they can however be very informative and interesting when considered against what the Bible prophetically tells us about, concerning the coming end-times.

The Web-Bot project is a vast computer program that "reads the chatter" contained on the internet and from that chatter, makes some very bold predictions. The Web-Bot has made many major predictions since its inception, including that of the 9-11 terrorist attacks.

The link contains 12 audio clips of about 10 minutes each, so you will have to set aside a couple of hours to hear the program in its entirety. However, it is well worth the effort and will have you considering the times we presently live in.

Fireball lights up the Mid-West sky

A very interesting video about a recent "fireball" that lit up the sky in the U.S Mid-West. It had some people searching their bible for this particular scripture:

Agricultural Apocalypse 2010

This article should be a must read for every Christian, (and non-christian as well). Jesus told his disciples that world wide famine would be one of the signs to look for that would indicate his soon return to Earth. (Luke 21:11, Matthew 24:7).

This article is very chilling and should make you stop and consider: "Perhaps it may be an idea to prepare for the worst and pray for the best".

Arab Murmuring Over Israeli Gas Already Begun

We posted yesterday about recent oil and natural gas discoveries off the Israeli coast, and how that may be the proverbial "carrot on a stick" that would entice the major players in the Gog/Magog war of Ezekiel 38 & 39 to attack Israel in that future war.

Well an article today seems to give that theory more credance. Already some neighboring Arab countries are lamenting that these discoveries will only entranch Israel further as a "usurper" in the Middle East. (Their words...not ours). An energy independent Israel would only increase the jealousy and loathing that it's Arab neighbors have for the Jewish state.

Israel Strike on Iran Could Mean Nuclear War

What do Russian President, Dmitri Medvedev and French President, Nicolas Sarkozy have in common other than living on the European continent? Both are very concerned that a nuclear war between Iran and Israel could be ignited if Israel strikes at Iran's nuclear ambitions.

Iran's Atomic Energy Organization announced that it would "join the world nuclear club within a month", and that "no country would even think about attacking Iran after Iran's membership in the club." Meanwhile, Iran's President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad warned that "nuclear devices will go off in American cities", if the United States were to strike Iran.

This is yet another fulfillment of biblical prophecy concerning the last days: "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come." 2 Timothy 3:1. We certainly are living in those days.

EU sees upswing in antisemitic attacks

For those that deny that Israel and the Jewish people remain "the apple of God's eye", and "God's treasured possession", please explain why the Jewish people are hated and vilified by so many around the world?

If the Jewish people of today are no different than your average Australian, Canadian, or American, why does the world hate them so? Simple answer. Because God still cherishes his people, and those people still represent the God of heaven. The world hates the true God of the universe, so thus they hate anything that represents that God, (the Jewish people along with true biblical Christians).

Please pray for the Jewish people and the nation of Israel. They are both fast losing their true friends and allies.

The winds of Middle East war

"Something is stirring in the Middle East. The winds of war are blowing, picking up speed with each passing day, and the threat to Israel is growing steadily more alarming."

The above is a direct quote from Journalist, Michael Freud of the Jerusalem Post, from his article entitled "The winds of Middle East War". The article can be found here:
http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Columnists/Article.aspx?id=169573

In another article entitled, "A New Middle East War?", columnist Conn Hallinan also foresees an impending conflict between Israel, Syria and Lebanon proxy, Hezbollah. That article is found here:
http://www.counterpunch.org/hallinan03302010.html

The prophecies laid out in Psalm 83 clearly paints a picture of an end-of-times battle between Israel and the Muslim nations immediately bordering Israel, (Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestinians). Judging by recent news such as the above, can this war be far away?

US Expert Predicts 'Oil and Gas Rush' to Israel

The book of Ezekiel has much to say about an upcoming war in the middle east. This war, which will see an alliance of nations, (including Russia and Iran), march on Israel. One of the suspected reasons for this battle is due to those nations seeking the riches that Israel will have at that time:

"Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and all her villages will say, Have you come to plunder? Have you gathered your hordes to loot, to carry of silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods and to seize much plunder?" Ezekiel 38:13 NIV

Recent geological surveys have determined that off the coast of Israel are large reserves of both oil and natural gas. (1.7 billion barrels of oil and 122.4 billion cubic feet of natural gas). With those proven reserves, and a diminishing world wide oil supply, Israel might look rather tasty to a hungry Russia bear.

Jews continue to flow into Israel from all parts of the world, including from North America. This is just another fulfillment of Biblical prophecy, which tells us we are indeed in the last days.

He will raise a banner for the nations and gather the exiles of Israel; he will assemble the scattered people of Judah from the four quarters of the earth."

Flooding in Rio de Janeiro - Worst storm in decades

Rio de Janerio just experienced one of the worst storms in decades causing major flooding and landslides. Close to 100 people have been killed by the storm.

Meanwhile, Colorado State University predicts the 2010 hurricane season will be "above average", with as many as 8 Atlantic hurricanes this season, (4 of them considered "major"). The forecasting team predicts upwards of 16 tropical storms this season, which includes the 8 hurricanes.

The bible is clear that one of the signs we will see as the end approaches deals with flooding and ocean storms:

Turkey looks to seduce the Arab world

Once an allie of Israel, Turkey has been on a torrid pace in the last couple of years to distance itself from the Jewish State, and allign itself with the Arab world, (in particular, the more radical regimes in Iran, Syria and Lebanon).

Ezekiel 38 describes an upcoming battle which will feature an array of allied nations coming against the Nation of Israel. One of the combatants includes "Beth Togarmah", which was a region in what is now know as Turkey.

"also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops; the many nations with you." Ezekiel 38:6

These are just a couple recent headlines showing the crumbling relations between Turkey and Israel, and Turkey's re-emergence within the Arab world.

Jordan's king: Future of Israel in jeopardy

As the end of this age approaches, Israel finds itself with fewer and fewer friends and allies. There will come a day when all the nations surrounding Israel will attempt to destroy the Nation of Israel forever:

"Come", they say, "let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more." Psalms 83:4

Jordan, one of the few Arab nations that had made peace with Israel, is now saying that relations between the two countries is at its lowest since the peace treaty was signed in 1994.

Interfaith movement gains new strength

Everyday brings the world closer to a world wide religious system. The Bible is clear that during the Tribulation period a "False Prophet", (Religious leader), would be at the forefront of Global religious entity that will work to convince the world of the necessity of Global leadership, (the Anti-Christ).

Almost like a script, the religions of the world are starting to unite under the guise of "solving" our many world problems. We had a recent blog entry about Tony Blair's attempts to bring about this new program, now this:

To every Christian....beware. The Bible is clear that we are to be a separate peoples in this world:

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:2

Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and to…

Another large earthquake. Precursor to the "Big One"?

Another earthquake this weekend. A 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck the Baja California region and was felt throughout Southern California and the North Western part of Mexico. This now brings the number of earthquakes of a magnitude 5.9 or greater to 18 thus far in 2010.

Now there is talk that the Baja California quake may signal that a much greater earthquake is not far away. John Rundle, a Seismologist from the University of California Berkeley, explains in this video what may happen:

It bears repeating, the Bible makes it very clear that in the last days, there will be great earthquakes in many different parts of the world.

2014 - 2015 Jewish Holiday Lunar Eclipses

We believe that the Jewish people and the nation of Israel are near and dear to the heart of God. We also believe that God "speaks" to his people, (and anyone else that is watching), through signs in the sky, specificially when those signs fall on Jewish holidays.

Quote: "The 2014 - 2015 lunar eclipse sequence known by NASA as a Tetrad will be the 8th occurrence since the time of Christ. The series of four total lunar eclipses in a row will happen on the Jewish Passover and Feast of Tabernacles Holidays. The Lunar eclipse tetrad has previously occurred 7 times before on the Jewish Holidays of Passover, Feast of Tabernacles, Feast of Trumpets and Yom Kippur." Unquote (redmoonrapture.com)

This Tetrad in 2014-2015 will be the only occurence in this century. The previous two Tetrads occured when Israel captured Jerusalem, (1967), and just after Israel became a nation, (1948). There are also a series of Solar eclipses to occur, prior to 2014-2015, which will fall on d…

Earth Has Entered New Age of Geological Time, Experts Say

It's not just Bible believing Christians who are looking around these days and say "something major this way comes". Now comes news that even the scientific community are conjecturing that due to man's destructive nature and misuse of the planet, that we are now due for a cataclysmis event that will destory mankind.

As each day passes, it is becoming ever more evident that the "world" will consider any man able to solve the worlds growing problems to be a saving messiah, and will fall all over themselves to worship that person. Just look back to 2008 and see how America looked at Barack Obama as some sort of messianic figure. It will happen again just as the bible predicted.

Men worshiped the dragon, (Satan), because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, "Who is like the beast? Who can make war against him?" Revelation 13:4

Blair courts controversial US pastor Rick Warren

The world is racing towards the development of the prophecied one world religious system, (Revelation 17). This world religious system will work hand in hand with the global governing system to bring people to a point where they will be forced to worship the leader of this world wide system.

Currently, former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, is pushing for the development of this world wide religious system which would encompass all faiths of the world. Even "evangelical christian leaders" such as Rick Warren are being seduced. (read more here).
