Puzzling Cosmic phenomenon

Jesus told his disciples that there would be some major signs in the heavens, (cosmos), in the last days. We believe he was referring to the time that would occur right before his second advent, and at the end of the Tribulation period. However, with that said, there are some very interesting and unexplainable things that scientists are discovering in space. Perhaps these could be preludes to coming events that will shake the heavens to its foundations.

There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. Luke 21:25-26 NIV

From the articles:
A puzzling pattern in the cosmic rays bombarding Earth from space has been discovered by an experiment buried deep under the ice of Antarctica. Cosmic rays are highly energetic particles streaming in from space that are thought to originate in the …

FBI to be given more powers to search Internet

The FBI and the American government would never misuse these news powers that are being proposed would they? They would never consider Christians, (or those that believed governments to be too intrusive), as a threat to the state would they?

The more we read of what governments around the world are doing from a police state standpoint, the more we see the ultimate plan of Satan. In order to control the peoples of this world, as the bible said would happen, (Revelation 13), this type of surveillance system must be in place for when the Antichrist steps out of the shadows.

From the articles:
The Obama administration is seeking to make it easier for the FBI to compel companies to turn over records of an individual's Internet activity without a court order if agents deem the information relevant to a terrorism or intelligence investigation. The administration wants to add just four words -- "electronic communication transactional records" -- to a list of items that the law sa…

Coming Water Shortage!

God will not tolerate disobedience forever. One of the ways he uses to punish the peoples of this world is by drying up the rains and the land. We suspect that God will most certainly use this punishment again during the times ahead.

So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today—to love the LORD your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul- then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and oil. I will provide grass in the fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied. Be careful, or you will be enticed to turn away and worship other gods and bow down to them. Then the LORD's anger will burn against you, and he will shut the heavens so that it will not rain and the ground will yield no produce, and you will soon perish from the good land the LORD is giving you. Deuteronomy 11:13-17

Is Middle East War Inevitable?

War drums continue to sound in the Mid-East. One thing for sure, war will once again occur come to Israel's borders. That much has been prophesied throughout the bible. However it will be on God's timetable as to when this will happen.

You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Matthew 24:6 NIV

From the articles:
No one in the region is calling for war. But a pre-war mood is growing. Four factors, none of them new but each destabilizing on its own, are compounding one another: lack of hope, dangerous governmental policies, a regional power vacuum, and the absence of active external mediation.

On July 27, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Washington would attack at least two countries in the Middle East by November 2010. "They have decided to attack at least two countries in the region in the next three months," Ahmadinejad, who did not elaborate, told Iranian tele…

Farmers brace for 'worst' locust plague on record

Pestilences. One of the major signs to look for. This was Jesus himself informing his Apostles of what it will be like in the last days:

There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven. Luke 21:11 NIV

From the articles:
Australia:
"It could be one of the worst plagues ever on record if control is not taken; there is no doubt about that. You'd be probably looking as early as August out in the western areas to do surveys and probably right through till the middle of October," he said.

China:
Huge swarms of locusts are ravaging grasslands and farmlands in many parts of China amid the lingering summer heat, and local authorities have resorted to aerial spraying of pesticides to kill the insects. Authorities in northern Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region have monitored locusts which have infested 3.9 million hectares, or 4.5 percent of the region's total area of grasslands, according to the latest figur…

You are being watched, monitored and surveiled

Read these excerpts from the following four articles and then tell us we aren't plowing headlong towards a scientific dictatorship. (We think it might be a good idea to head back to that cabin on the lake in the mountains for an extended stay if this keeps up)

He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. Revelation 13:7 NIV
He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. Revelation 13:16-17 NIV

Home-school ban in Sweden forces families to mull leaving

Be thankful that in this country we still have the freedom to educated our children the way we see fit, including homeschooling or enrolling our children in private religious schools. Europe is cracking down on such methods in another "government knows best" erosion of personal liberties.

Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6 NIV
Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction that comes from the Lord. Ephesians 6:4 NLT

From the articles:
Liberal Party pushed a new 1,500-page schooling law through last month one paragraph of which will make home schooling as an expression of religion or philosophy effectively impossible for Swedish families, other than in "exceptional circumstances" such as health issues or distance from a public school. The law also severely restricts religious practice in Sweden's "confessional"…

Massive asteroid could hit Earth

The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water— the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter. Revelation 8:10-11 NIV

From the article:
A massive asteroid might crash into Earth in the year 2182, scientists have warned. The asteroid, called 1999 RQ36, has a 1-in-1,000 chance of actually hitting the Earth at some point before the year 2200, but is most likely to hit us on 24th September 2182. It was first discovered in 1999 and is more than 1,800 feet across. If an asteroid of this size hit the Earth it would cause widespread devastation and possible mass extinction. While the odds may seem long, they are far shorter than that of the asteroid Apophis, which currently has a 1 in 250,000 chance of striking Earth in 2036.

The Year America Dissolved

The following article is a very interesting "what if" scenario based on the current economic situation. Given what the bible tells us will happen during the Tribulation, (dire economic circumstances, food shortages, famines, droughts), one could easily see this scenario occurring. A resulting complete breakdown in structured government and order would allow for the rise of a New World Order controled by one man with seemingly all the answers to the worlds problems.

Sun surges: Yet another apocalypic theory to worry about

Some interesting signs from the heavens could be coming our way very shorty just as Jesus told us disciples would happen in the last days.

Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. Luke 21:26 NIV

From the article:
Every 11 years, for reasons that aren’t completely understood, our sun hits what’s called its solar maximum: an especially active period when sun spots, solar flares and “coronal mass ejections—these clouds of plasma that flow out of the sun at millions of kilometres an hour,” as astronomer Sten Odenwald puts it, are more likely to occur. The resulting streams of particles and pulses of electromagnetic energy create what’s called space weather, which can have all sorts of impacts here, throwing the Earth’s magnetic field into disarray and disrupting everything from GPS systems to the power grid. We’re now coming out of a quiet period for the sun, as it wakes up and moves toward the next solar maximum, expect…

Doomsday shelters making a comeback

Many people are concerned something like an apocalyptic event is just around the corner. They don't know what it is, but many are preparing now for that eventuality.

Aren't you glad you have your faith in something more than a underground shelter? Knowing Jesus Christ on a personal basis gives us the assuredness that whatever comes, he will always have us in his hand. We may have to endure some troubles, but ultimately we know were we are going.

"If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9 (NLT)

World sizzles to record for the year

While it is not the Tribulation yet, some around the world may be wondering if the prophecies of Revelation concerning the sun and its heat may have come a little early. There are countless news headlines of record heat waves occurring throughout the Northern Hemisphere. (Incidentally it has been in the low 90s F 32 C here in the mid part of British Columbia, by no means records). The bible makes it clear, that close to the end of the Tribulation period the heat from the sun will get far worse.

Revelation 16:8 “The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was given power to scorch people with fire.”
Revelation 7: 16 “Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat.”

The Death of Paper Money

The World economy will be radically different under the rule of the Antichrist. In order to control the peoples of the world, a new economic system must be implemented from the ashes of the old system. Everyday, we read headlines of impending economic doom, and the collapse of the paper money system. Get ready for an electronic cashless society that will require you to be marked in order to participate in any day to day commerce.

He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. Revelation 13:16-17 NIV

Is Israel on the Brink of War?

Another week, and more talk of war in the Middle East. Whether it's the Psalm 83 prophesied battle or the Ezekiel 38/39 Gog/Magog war, tensions are certainly high in the epicentre.

From the articles:
Will there be a war in the Middle East this summer? That's the question many are asking. Israel recently held its biggest nationwide drill in history to prepare for the possibility of war -- a thought never far away from the minds or lips of most Israelis. "We discuss the fact that we hope it never happens and what we're going to do if it does happen and the thought of it is terrible," one resident said. The threats surround Israel. There are scud missiles in Syria, and as many as 5,000 rockets in the hands of Hamas on Israel's southern border, despite efforts of a naval blockade to keep the weapons out. And to the north, it's now estimated Hezbollah possesses more than 40,000 rockets aimed at the Jewish State.

The atmosphere in our area is heating up and the s…

Natural gas could lead to new Lebanon-Israel war

We've noted before that there may be prophecies in the bible that suggest Israel will, in the last days, discover riches under the sands.....(oil and natural gas). There have been several recent announcements of such finds.
We have also noted that the bible suggests that one of the reasons for the Gog/Magog war of Ezekiel is to plunder Israel of their new found riches. You can now add Lebanon to the list of nations that are already eyeing Israel with envy over its recently discovered natural gas and oil reserves.

From the article:
The discovery of large natural gas reserves under the waters of the eastern Mediterranean could potentially mean a huge economic windfall for Israel and Lebanon, both resource-poor nations - if it doesn't spark new war between them. The Hezbollah militant group has blared warnings that Israel plans to steal natural gas from Lebanese territory and vows to defend the resources with its arsenal of rockets. Israel says the fields it is developing do not …

Wal-Mart plan to use smart tags raises privacy concerns

The world's largest retailer is implementing a new inventory tracking system. Wal-Mart will now add an RFID tag to every article of clothing it sells. This has caused concern among consumer advocacy groups and civil libertarians. Just another example of how citizens are being tracked and monitored. Read on:

"This is a first piece of a very large and very frightening tracking system," said Katherine Albrecht, director of a group called Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering. Albrecht worries that Wal-Mart and others would be able to track movements of customers who in some border states like Michigan and Washington are carrying new driver's licenses that contain RFID tags to make it easier for them to cross borders. Albrecht fears that retailers could scan data from such licenses and their purchases and combine that data with other personal information. She also says that even though the smart tags can be removed from clothing, they can't …

More earthquakes in diverse places

While these earthquakes are pretty small, (with the ones in California certainly not out of the ordinary), the New Brunswick quake is the largest in recent years. Earthquakes are occurring in places that have not felt a trembler in many years, (Arkansas, Tennessee, Ontario, New Brunswick). Makes you wonder what's happening under the feat of the Eastern North American dwellers?

Dreaming of the Third Temple

Israel Prophecies:
Prophecy #1 fulfilled: Israel's rebirth as a nation in 1948
Prophecy #2 fulfilled: Israel recaptures Jerusalem in 1967
Prophecy #3 still unfulfilled: Rebuilding the Temple

The Jewish Temple will be rebuilt. How can we be so sure? Because the Antichrist will desecrate it by entering the temple and demanding to be worshiped as God:

He will confirm a covenant with many for one 'seven.' In the middle of the 'seven' he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing of the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him. Daniel 9:27

So when you see standing in the holy place 'the abomination that causes desolation, spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand— then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let no one on the roof of his house go down to take anything out of the house. Let no one in the field go back to get his cloak. Matthew 24:15-18

European police to spy on Britons

The World is rushing onward towards a police state, (if not there already). Now foreign police agencies will be able to act against British citizens on British soil. Can an international "Police" agency with sweeping powers to act anywhere in the world be that far behind? If the bible is correct, and the Antichrist is to have power and rule over all corners of the planet, a personal Gestapo like police force would be entirely plausible and most assuredly would be at the beck and call of this Global Dictator.

He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world. Revelation 13:7-8 NIV

Uniting Religions For World Change

Man, did the Apostle Paul have some vision or what, (passages from Timothy below), when it came to the last days and the apostasy that would arise? Just read these headlines from the last week. It's no wonder that it is getting harder and harder to be a professing bible believing Christian in these last days, and why Jesus said these words: But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. Matthew 24:13 KJV

From the book of Timothy:
....having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them. 2 Timothy 3:5 NIV
....while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 2 Timothy 3:13 NIV
For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. 2 Timothy 4:3-4 NIV

We are now back

After several days of canoeing, fly fishing, swimming, biking and hiking, we are back. We will try to recap some of the news over the last week in a few blog entries.

We will be away for a few days

Our family will be taking a few days of R&R this coming week. We are heading out to a Log Cabin on a beautiful lake close to the mountains. (I know, it sounds like paradise, but that's what you get when you live out here in Beautiful British Columbia.)

So for those that like a regular dose of global headlines related to prophecy, we have a couple of sites you can check on, while we are out canoeing the pristine lakes of the Cariboo.

Nigerian pastor's family killed in sectarian clashes

More Christian/Muslim violence in Nigeria where Muslim extremists had killed 500 Christians in a bloody raid earlier this year.

From the article:
The wife of a pastor, his two children and a grandson were among eight people killed in fresh sectarian violence in religiously-divided central Nigeria, the clergyman said on Sunday. Fulani Muslims launched the overnight attack on Mazzah, near Jos, early Saturday, killing eight people with machetes and burning seven houses and a church in the latest religious clashes.

School to use hi-tech child tracking system

Just a couple days ago, we had put up a blog entry linking to an article about an American school district implementing a RFID program for buses and students. Now a Qatar school is doing the exact same thing. We suspect that when the "Mark of the Beast" system comes along, many people will be duped into taking the mark simply because it will be sold as such a good idea. When the government comes calling and tells you that you need to have some sort of an identifier permanently afixed to your body.....run, do not walk, from it.

Minor Changes in Language Could Mean Major Changes in Religious Freedom

The Obama administration has made a minor change from previously saying "Freedom of Religion" to now, saying "Freedom of Worship" Read the article to find out what this means.

From the article:
In her article for "First Things" magazine, Ashley Samelson, International Programs Director for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, stated, "To anyone who closely follows prominent discussion of religious freedom in the diplomatic and political arena, this linguistic shift is troubling: "The reason is simple. Any person of faith knows that religious exercise is about a lot more than freedom of worship. It's about the right to dress according to one's religious dictates, to preach openly, to evangelize, to engage in the public square. Everyone knows that religious Jews keep kosher, religious Quakers don't go to war, and religious Muslim women wear headscarves-yet "freedom of worship" would protect none of these acts of faith."

Dengue fever turns epidemic in Caribbean

There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven. Luke 21:11 NIV

From the articles:
Mosquito-borne dengue fever is reaching epidemic stages across the Caribbean, with dozens of deaths reported and health authorities concerned it could get much worse as the rainy season advances. The increase in cases is being blamed on warm weather and an unusually early rainy season, which has produced an explosion of mosquitoes. Health officials say the flood of cases is straining the region’s hospitals.

The Syrian opposition asserted that an unknown disease has been raging through Syrian Army barracks, particularly in the north. The opposition said the suspected epidemic has killed several people and delayed a recruitment program.

Government cyber invasion - RT video

An interesting 8 minute video from RT Today discussing whether government plans to monitor the internet for Cyber attacks are nothing more than a veiled takeover of the internet to allow governments to ultimately control, monitor and censor sites they don't like.

Sex-ed program sparks grizzly effect

What on earth is in the heads of public educators today? Obviously not much!! First in Ontario, and now in Montana, educators are trying to bring in sex education for children as young as kindergartners. We won't get into the graphic details here, but simply supply a couple quotes from the articles. If there should be anyone from Montana reading this blog there is good news for you. Ontario educators finally backed down from their controversial proposed program after some major heat was put on the government from Religious groups and concerned parents. You can defeat this. Ontario did.

Article regarding Montana:
A proposed sex-education curriculum in Montana is drawing outrage because it would teach young children about subjects like same-sex intercourse. Under the proposal for the Helena school district, kindergartners would learn the proper names of sexual body parts, first-graders would be taught that sexual relations could happen between two men or two women, and fifth-graders w…

National Education Association celebrates 'drag queen' teachers

The National Education Association (NEA) continues to alienate more and more of its conservative constituents as the organization showed its liberal leanings at its 2010 national convention. At this year's meeting in New Orleans, the largest professional organization and labour union in the U.S. recognized a new caucus: the NEA Drag Queen Caucus. "They already have had the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, [and] Transgender Caucus and apparently felt that the drag queens needed their own caucus," explains Finn Laursen, executive director of Christian Educators Association International (CEAI).

4 missionaries charged in Dearborn festival proselytizing

Four Christian missionaries were arraigned today on misdemeanour charges of disturbing the peace following their June 18 arrest at the Arab International Festival. Negeen Mayel, 18, of California; Nabeel Qureshi, 29, of Virginia; Paul Rezkalla, 18 of New York, and David Wood, 34, also of New York, face fines of up to $500 each and up to 93 days in jail.
Dearborn authorities said the four "chose to escalate their behaviour, which appeared well-orchestrated and deliberate" as they handed out religious literature and talking with people at the festival. The woman and three men are members or founders of a group called "Acts 17 Apologetics." But Ann Arbor attorney Robert Muise, senior trial counsel with the Thomas More Law Center, said their constitutional rights were violated and they engaged in no illegal behaviours. "The encroachment of the First Amendment is just astonishing," said Muise, who said police confiscated the video cameras and have yet to retur…

Cop Orders Kids To Stop Praying At Supreme Court

A group of Christian students was allegedly ordered to stop praying outside the U.S. Supreme Court building on May 5 because a court police officer told them it was against the law. According to Nate Kellum, senior counsel with the Alliance Defense Fund, a police officer “abruptly” interrupted the prayer and ordered the group to cease and desist. “They were told to stop praying because they were violating the law and they had to take their prayer elsewhere,” Kellum told FOX News Radio.

U.S. School District to Begin Microchipping Students

A Rhode Island school district has announced a pilot program to monitor student movements by means of radio frequency identification (RFID) chips implanted in their schoolbags. The Middletown School District, in partnership with MAP Information Technology Corp., has launched a pilot program to implant RFID chips into the schoolbags of 80 children at the Aquidneck School. Each chip would be programmed with a student identification number, and would be read by an external device installed in one of two school buses. The buses would also be fitted with global positioning system (GPS) devices. Parents or school officials could log onto a school web site to see whether and when specific children had entered or exited which bus, and to look up the bus’s current location as provided by the GPS device.

Threatened Israeli strike on Iran would lead to regional war, report says

This excerpt from one of the following articles pretty much sums the second, third and forth seal judgments of Revelation 6:3-8;

Seal #2 - Wars, and many perishing from war, (oil prices then skyrocket causing.....)
Seal #3 - Food shortages and high cost for what food there is, (lack of food causes.......)
Seal #3 - People dieing from famine and plague

From the articles:
The ultimate nightmare scenario could soon become a reality: Israeli strike aircraft cross into Iranian airspace and hit the nuclear facilities at Natanz, Esfahan and Qom, as well as the laboratories of the University of Tehran. Iran retaliates by hitting Tel Aviv with long-range missiles and fanning the insurgencies in Iraq and Afghanistan, engulfing the Middle East in a protracted regional war and triggering a global economic crisis over oil prices. This terrifying outcome is increasingly likely if Israel carries out a reportedly impending military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities, according to a new study by the…

'Virtual preaching' transforms Sunday sermons

Interesting technology that we have now that allows a person to be in two places at once. Also somewhat ironic that our churches are now using a system that may well be used against the Saints of God in the future.

He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. Revelation 13:15 NIV

From the article:

"It's so real that people have come up after service to see me and [other] people are saying, 'Dude, he is on video,' '' he said. Geoff Surratt, author of "The Multi-site Church Revolution," said at least 3,000 churches nationwide use some variation of high-def video to spread their pastor's Sunday morning sermons. Some broadcast hologram images of pastors that float suspended in the air behind the pulpit, while others project images of ministers on large video screens. Some sermons are broadcast live, while others are pre-recorded.

Gays marriages now the norm?

Please, do not hate Gay people. Far to many Christians seem to hate the person rather that hating the sin that person is living under. Continue to pray for all people that are living a lifestyle not approved or condoned by God.Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. Romans 1:28 NIVFrom the articles:Lawsuits over gay marriage have escalated on the nation's two coasts, energizing advocates on both sides and bringing the legal battle over same-sex marriage closer to the U.S. Supreme CourtMeanwhile down in Argentina:Argentina on Thursday became the first country in Latin America to legalize same-sex marriage, following a landmark Senate vote carried live on national television. The law, backed by the center-left government of President Cristina Kirchner, was adopted in a 33-27 vote after 15 hours of debate. In this majority Roman Catholic country, some had reservations,…

South Korea deploys robot capable of killing intruders along border with North

Remember the movie Robocop with Rob Weller? If you don't, it was a movie about robotic cops of the future. Well it now turns out that South Korea will man it's borders with a Robocop of its own. How does this fit into prophecy? Well perhaps it doesn't, aside from fulfilling the prophecy written in the book of Daniel about increased knowledge in the last days, (Daniel 12:4). However we think it's interesting nonetheless.

From the article:

South Korea has deployed sentry robots capable of detecting and killing intruders along the heavily-fortified border with North Korea, officials said on Tuesday. Two robots with surveillance, tracking, firing and voice recognition systems were integrated into a single unit, a defence ministry spokesman said.

Sun Eruption That May Have Spawned Zombie Satellite Identified

A satellite has become the first victim of a CME, (Coronal Mass Ejection) since the sun re-awoke from a lengthy slumber. The satellite is now disabled and drifting around the earth. Scientists have warned that 2012 and 2013 may see significant solar storms with the potential to knock out satellite communications as well as entire power grids. The bible also warns that we will see signs in the sky near the end if days:

"There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea." Luke 21:25 NIV

From the article:

The huge explosion of plasma and magnetic energy, called as a coronal mass ejection (CME), occurred on April 3 and was observed by NASA's sun-watching STEREO spacecraft, according to the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL). The laboratory released new images of the solar storm last week. The solar storm appears to have disabled the Intelsat communications satellite Galaxy 15, NRL offi…

Liberation Theology and Social Justice

If you have not already watched the July 13th episode of the Glenn Beck show, you should click on this link and do so right now. This episode is a must for any bible believing Christian who must be wondering what on earth is going on with some of our Churches. Although Mr. Beck does not mention it, his discussion on "Collective Salvation" certainly makes one see just what kind of doctrine the coming false religious system will have. And just how that deception will entangle and ensnare those people without the knowledge and discernment provided in God's word, the Bible.

This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words. The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned." 1 Corinthians 2:13-14 NIV

Why BP is readying a 'super weapon' to avert escalating Gulf nightmare

Here is another report, (how accurate we do not know), indicating that something may be escalating under the ocean floor near the B.P. oil spill disaster. From the report:

In a desperate attempt to stop a huge area of the Gulf ocean floor from possibly rupturing due to subterranean methane gas (leading to a calamity no human has ever seen) BP has ripped a page from science fiction books. The giant oil company is now quietly preparing to test a small nuclear device in a frenzied rush against time to quell a cascading catastrophe. If successful they will have the capability to detonate a controlled fusion generated pulse. Reports still indicate that methane is flooding the Gulf waters at a rate one million times more than normal, and the NOAA research vessel, Thomas Jefferson has reported spotting new fissures. Last week the science ship stunned some reporters with the revelation that the oceanographic team had discovered and measured a rift in the ocean floor miles from the BP wellhead.…

All shook up in Chile

If this keeps up, one day Chile will simply slide off the South American map and into the Pacific Ocean. More large earthquakes rattled the Chilean people with one today, (July 14), and one a couple days ago.

It bears repeating...Jesus warned that earthquakes, (many and large), would be a precursor to his soon return, (Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21).

Russia and Iran relations

First Russia warns of Iran's nuclear weapons ambitions, and then the Russians turn around and basically say, "no problem".

From the articles:

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev says Iran is "moving closer" to having the potential to create nuclear weapons. It is one of the first times Moscow has publicly recognized that Iran might be moving towards a nuclear weapon. Russia, which has strong economic and military ties with Iran, has traditionally been an ally of Tehran.

International sanctions against Tehran will not affect Russian-Iranian cooperation, the countries' energy ministers said on Wednesday. On June 9, the UN Security Council passed Resolution 1929 imposing a fourth set of sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program, including tougher financial controls and an expanded arms embargo. "Sanctions will not be a hindrance," Russian Energy Minister Sergei Shmatko said after talks with visiting Iranian Petroleum Minister Masud Mir-Kazemi. "S…

The Euro Crisis Is Just The Prelude To The International Dollar Crisis

This time we have a 6 minute CNBC video which examines the present economic crisis, as well as a couple more articles which highlights the fact that this economic crisis is world wide, (Japan, the U.S. and Europe).

The Euro Crisis Is Just The Prelude To The International Dollar Crisis - Video

From the articles:Greece’s debt problems have highlighted the fiscal woes of Japan, but is the world’s second-biggest economy really facing a Greece-like debt crisis? How bad is Japan’s fiscal position? By certain measures, Japan’s debt load is worse than that of Greece. Japan’s outstanding long-term government debt is set to reach ¥862 trillion ($9.72 trillion) at the end of March 2011, or 181% of the country’s gross domestic product, the Ministry of Finance says. If short-term debt is added, Japan’s liabilities will hit 197% of GDP this year and 204% in 2011, the highest among advanced eco…

Empty Store Shelves Coming to America

What would happen should a world wide event occur in the near future? If a war erupted in the Middle-East, should the teetering economy collapse, if oil prices skyrocketed, all would cause pandemonium at your local grocery store.

Christian persecution - Muslims placated

We have speculated before that during the Tribulation period, the false religious system that the bible speaks of may have more than a little Islamic overtone. Given that the bible describes the Tribulation as the "Time of Jacobs trouble", (Jacob referring to Israel and the Jewish people), and that Jacob's brother was non other than the Esau, (the father of the Arabic people - most of who are Muslim), it makes sense that the two will clash at the time of the end.

Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it. Jeremiah 30:7

It also makes sense that this religious system will also clash with anyone that proclaims that the only way to Almighty God is through his son, Jesus Christ.

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. Revelation 13:15

Iran War Even Closer?

There is a growing group of politically right wing alternative media types that are discounting Iran and its ever growing threat to Israel and the Middle-East in general. These "media" types purport that Iran's nuclear ambitions are benign and that it is the U.S. government that is seeking war.

A quote from the following article:

We keep trying to figure out the logic flow here. We discount the idea that bombing Iran is necessary because we don't think Iran would ever use a nuclear bomb except maybe in self defence.
Iran War Even Closer?
http://www.rightsidenews.com/2010071310982/editorial/iran-war-even-closer.html

Those people are simply wrong. The Bible tells us in the book of Ezekiel that Persia, (Iran), will be one of the ringleaders in an alliance of nations that seek to destroy Israel. (read Ezekiel 38:1-6). And the very fact that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has threatened to "wipe Israel of the map", says a lot more than some ill-informed conspi…

Global population study launched by Royal Society

While not related to bible prophecy specifically, Eugenics is certainly Orwellian. When the State can enforce Malthusian one child policies, even by forced abortions or sterilizations, that is truly evil. It was God himself to told the peoples of this Earth to be fruitful and multiply, (Genesis 1:28). There have been more and more of these types of articles appearing in the mainstream press; All pressing the need for population control. Don't be surprised when a global dictator takes those policies to heart and starts eradicating those people that reject him as God.

From the articles:

The burgeoning human population is acknowledged as one of the underlying causes of environmental issues such as climate change, deforestation, depletion of water resources and loss of biodiversity.

Since the family planning policy was implemented, local governments strictly controlled the births of each family, and only allowed each couple to have one child, but with a more flexible policy in China’s…

Hizballah advances 20,000 troops to Israeli border

Preparations for war continue along the Israel border. The Iranian funded and Syrian trained Hizbullah forces in Lebanon are making ready for a battle with Israel. Whether or not this will lead to the battle prophesied in Psalm 83 remains to be seen. All the participants are lining up just as the bible said they would.From the articles:Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu keeps on vowing that Iran will not be allowed to establish an outpost on Israel's borders, but he has not lifted a finger to stop this menace ensconcing itself in the north. He cannot realistically expect feeble UN reprimands and the puny French contingent of UNIFIL to blow away the 20,000 Hizballah troops dug in in 160 new positions in South Lebanon, backed by a vast rocket arsenal - even though this is a gross violation of UN Security Council resolution 1701.

Israel is “preparing something” for Lebanon and Hizbullah is on high alert to prevent it, unnamed sources in the group were quoted by London-based newspaper A…

Apocalypse now? In US and abroad many are prepared

Many prognosticators are predicting some major upheavals in the United States over the next months or years. One Russian observer even predicted the break-up of the Union with parts forming their own sovereign nations with others areas grafting on to Canada or Mexico.

While that may be a little over the top thinking and way too much of a Hollywood storyline, (remember the T.V. show Jericho?); We however have some advice for any American citizens thinking of becoming ex-patriots here in God's country north of your border. Make sure you move to Western Canada.

All of Alberta, the Central and Northern parts of British Columbia and much of Saskatchewan and Manitoba are the freedom loving, Judea Christian, gun owning, Conservative havens you most likely would fit right in with.

The big crash – America plunges into Depression

Another week, and already a whole batch of very gloomy economic headlines from Europe and south of the 49th parralle. We count ourselves lucky to live and work in Canada, where unemployment levels have now dropped to levels not seen since prior to the October 2008 economic collapse. Canada is now considered to have the strongest and most robust economy in the world. But let's not kid ourselves. We are a nation of only 34 million people in a world of 6.8 billion. If America, the EuroZone and Japan all slip into depression or worse, our nation will fall along with the others. Please do what you need to prepare yourselves for such an eventuality. And remember, the bible warns that a major economic collapse is on its way, (read James 5:1-5).Excerpts from the articles:It's the worst of times. America is plunging back into Depression. Only one out of every two Americans of working age has a job. Forty years ago that would have been okay. Dad went to the factory. Mom stayed at home …

Unmanned stealth jet that will hit targets in another continent

We are told in the book of Daniel that near the end of days, knowledge would increase greatly;

But you, Daniel, keep this prophecy a secret; seal up the book until the time of the end, when many will rush here and there, and knowledge will increase." Daniel 12:4 NLT

This article about a very hig-tech unmanned jet would fit the bill about an increased amount of knowledge to pull this off:

From the article:

Defence firm BAE Systems today officially unveiled its first ever high-tech unmanned stealth jet. The Taranis, named after the Celtic god of thunder, is about the same size as a Hawk jet and is equipped with stealth equipment and an 'autonomous' artificial intelligence system. The plane will test the possibility of developing the first ever autonomous stealthy Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle (UCAV) Almost invisible to ground radar, it is designed to travel at high jet speeds and cover massive distances between continents. The plane is built to carry out intelligence, surveillanc…

Are you ready??

There is so much going on in this world today; From rumours of wars to impending economic hardship; From talk of global food shortages, to Christian persecution. There has been a significant increase in seismic activity over the last several years, and now warnings of major solar activity that could have significant impact on our high-tech world. Even the words "Global Governance" are on the tip of every politicians tongue these days

The prophets of the Old Testament, the Apostle John in his writings in the book of Revelation and Jesus Christ himself, all foretold of these events to occur right near the end of days.

We are in those days now. Please do not kid yourself or try to rationalize the events that are occurring. Most of the people that visit this website are probably already committed Christians with an interest in bible prophecy. However there may be some of you that have never made that personal commitment to Jesus Christ.

Our prayer is that none of you have to go thr…

10 ways we are being tracked, traced and databased

It will be near impossible for anyone to survive outside the coming matrix that will exist during the Tribulation period.

From the attached article:

The war on terror is a worldwide endeavor that has spurred massive investment into the global surveillance industry - which now seems to be becoming a war on "liberty and privacy." Given all of the new monitoring technology being implemented, the uproar over warrantless wiretaps now seems moot. High-tech, first-world countries are being tracked, traced, and databased, literally around every corner. Governments, aided by private companies, are gathering a mountain of information on average citizens who so far seem willing to trade liberty for supposed security. Here are just some of the ways the matrix of data is being collected.

The Russian Bear Awakens

We noted in a previous blog entry that Russia may play a major part in future bible prophecy events. The old Soviet Union was the major power behind the long-time enemies of Israel, providing such countries as Syria and Libya with armaments. Russia is once again re-emerging as that major power, rebuilding its Middle-East power base.

From the attached article:

The Russian Bear has awakened, and yet most people in the U.S. think of Russia as a Cold War opponent that we "defeated" and which is now a shell of its former self. The recent Russian spy case is a perfect example of the tremendous lack of respect which the American public has for Russia these days. It is almost as if the media is saying: "Oh look, isn't it so cute that these little Russians are spying on us as if the Cold War was still going on?" But the truth is that it is a massive error to underestimate Russia. Today it is a fact that Russia is stronger both economically and militarily than it ever h…
