Euro has 1-in-5 chance of lasting decade: UK think-tank

All has been quite on the European front these last couple of weeks.  After much distress and consternation over the failing economies of Ireland and Greece, things have cooled down a bit.  However, it may only be the calm before another storm.

It is our belief that the European Union is the revived Roman empire of the prophecies of Daniel, and from this empire will emerge the much ballyhooed Antichrist.  This empire will then morph into the 10 world kingdoms that will last but an "hour"

It is also our belief that the formation of the Revived Roman Empire, (European Union), has not become what it will ultimately be at the time of the Antichrist.  It is our contention that the economies of Europe will continue to dissolve, requiring a major restructuring of the EU into a Super-State.  Each member state will give up much of its sovereignty to this new entity.

“He gave me this explanation: ‘The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different fro…

Wild weather from Australia to America

Some might call it the effects of Global Climate change, we suspect the anomalous weather this year has more to do with solar activity.  The Sun was in a period of inactivity, and the globe warms up.  The Sun starts to awaken from its slumber, and the weather goes nuts, and starts to cool.  Coincidence?  We think not.

Anyways, which ever theory you prefer, it certainly is a topic of conversation around the water coolers of the world.  From governments to media, from Hollywood to Bollywood, climate change has been has been all the rage and the major concern of world leaders for over a decade.  One might say that the world is even perplexed with the problem:

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 articles: The western United States is bearing the brunt of new winter storms, with heavy snow blanketing an area from New Mexico to Minnesota. Snow and ice have closed…

Next Year's Wars - The 16 brewing conflicts to watch for in 2011

Read this article, and then remember the words of Jesus Christ:

When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.Mark 13:7-8 NIV
From the article: Across the globe today, you'll find almost three dozen raging conflicts, from the valleys of Afghanistan to the jungles of the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the streets of Kashmir. But what are the next crises that might erupt in 2011? Here are a few worrisome spots that make our list.

Next Year's Wars - The 16 brewing conflicts to watch for in 2011

Islamic Terrorists Continue Attacks on Iraqi Christians

Yet more Christian persecution in Iraq, from the hands of Islamic extremists.  Please pray for Christians around the world that live under the threat of persecution.

From the article: Islamic terrorists have killed two more Iraqi Christians, attacking four Christian homes with bombs and grenades Thursday night. The new round of attacks on Iraqi Christians have many of them planning to flee their homeland. The tiny Christian community has been keeping a low-profile during the holidays.

3.8 magnitude earthquake hits north central Indiana

There have been a number of earthquakes this year through the Eastern/Central part of North America.  From Arkansas all the way up to Ontario and Quebec.  Turns out there are several rifts through Eastern North America including the New Madrid fault line and the St. Lawrence rift line.  Both these fault lines have seen several quakes this year.

Is it only coincidental that as the Sun enters into a Solar Max period, the earth starts to rumble and shake?  Think of it like a popcorn kernel in a microwave.  As the waves enter the kernel and cause the particle to heat up and expand, the kernel finally explodes, (a little butter and salt and we have a movie night).  The Suns radiation must have the same effect on the core of the earth.  As the radiation increases, the earth begins to act like that kernel of corn.While the Earth will not pop like a kernel of corn, other things are prophesied to happen. There will come a day according to bible prophecy, when this old earth will be ripped apa…

"No refusal" DUI checkpoints could be coming to Tampa

So now the authorities will have the ability to take blood tests on the spot if a driver declines to perform a breath test.  While we applaud efforts to get drunk drivers off the road, these types of efforts are an affront to personal liberties.  To be forced to give over a blood sample before you even have the opportunity to consult a lawyer is indeed a slippery slope as one constitutional rights lawyer points out in this article.

What will be next?  Will the authorities be allowed to randomly search your vehicle, randomly search your belonging in a metro subway, or be allowed to pat down your private parts in the name of security?  Wait a minute; they're already doing those things in America.  People need to stand up and cry foul when they see authorities over-stepping their boundaries.

Again we warn that a Police state system must be in operation when the Antichrist begins his campaign that will see many, many people martyred for the beliefs.  Only in states such as the former…

Internet groups fear UN could threaten cyberspace

There has been much talk these last few months about controlling the internet.  America with its Net Neutrality and Fairness doctrine proposals, and the United Nations with its own proposals to set up regulating bodies to govern the world wide web.  What all these proposals boil down to is the control of information, more directly, what governments of the world think you should have access to and what they think needs to be blocked from your knowledge.

There will come a time when sites like these which have a biblical basis and sometimes point out the flaws of government and the evil nature of people will be deemed offensive and against the public good, and will be blocked.  Think it can't happen?  Already in countries such as China and Venezuela, governments are using new laws to block information that they consider seditious and contrary to the welfare of the state.

It is very likely that the Antichrist of the future will use these new laws and government controls to shut down …

Almost Everything Is A Crime In America Now

After reading this article, and following the links to the original articles, one has to ask the question:  Just what is up with America??  The article does a good job asking that very same question, but with few answers as to why America seems to be slowing turning into a Totalitarian society.  It's no wonder that America, (or any of the other Western nations for that matter), does not appear in end-times Bible prophecy.After the rapture of the Church, America will be left a shell of its former self, with a whole host of unsolvable problems, and a Police state regime ready to impose order.

From the article: Doesn't it seem like almost everything is becoming a crime in America now?  Americans are being arrested and charged with crimes for doing things like leaving dog poop on the ground, opening up Christmas presents early, not recycling properly, farting in class and having brown lawns.  But is it healthy for our society for the police to be involved in such silly things?  Ev…

On-body computing coming soon

The following article is quite interesting.  Some very clever people are working on a system that will literally turn your hand into a T.V. remote control, or a keyboard for one of your personal devices.  This item can be filed under both increased knowledge, and perhaps a more chilling prophetic fulfillment, that of the Mark of the Beast.  Advancements in technology are making possible the fulfillment of many prophecies in the book of Revelation.  From the Mark of the Beast, to the ability to control who is able to buy and sell; From the Image of the Beast, to the ability to track down and eliminate those that refuse to accept the Antichrist as God.

From the article: Yanking your smartphone out of your pocket to check email or to skip to the next song on your playlist could become obsolete when advanced technology puts a keyboard in the palm of your hand. "Skinput" is an armband that projects a virtual keyboard onto a user's palm or forearm and reads the sounds of tappin…

So Young and So Many Pills

This article as far as we are concerned, is an indictment on our current society.  That more than 25% of American children and teens are now medicated in some form or other is astonishing.  The world is fast becoming medicated and sedated on either illicit drugs or pharmaceuticals of the legal variety.  Think about it!  Just how many ads do you see these days advertising yet another fix-all drug for what ails you?  Can't sleep, got restless legs, a little depressed, need a little more zoom in the bedroom?  There's a fix for all that.  Just take another drug.
The book of Revelation may have pointed to this rise in self medication as the end-times approached.  We are told in Revelation 9:21, that the peoples of the world will simply not repent of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts, even after suffering through the perils of the Tribulation.
The original word in place of the English word sorceries in this passage is theGreek word…

Forecasters keep eye on looming 'Solar Max'

The Sun is awakening and is slated to head into a period of activity that some scientists are concerned about.  This Solar Max of activity is to peak in 2013 and has the potential to do much damage to the world’s power grids and communication systems.
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 coming year will be an important one for space weather as the Sun pulls out of a trough of low activity and heads into a long-awaited and possibly destructive period of turbulence. Many people may be surprised to learn that the Sun, rather than burn with faultless consistency, goes through moments of calm and tempest. The latest cycle began in 1996 and for reasons which are unclear has taken longer than expected to end. Now, though, there are more and more signs that the Sun is shaking off its torpor and building towards "Solar Max," or the cycle's…

More than 19,000 Jews move to Israel in 2010

Probably the biggest fulfillment of bible prophecy in our current era is that of the rebirth of Israel.  The tiny nation that did not exist prior to 1948 is proof positive that we are indeed in the last days.  Israel continues to grow in population as Jews from around the world gravitate to the land of the forefathers, just as God said would happen.

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
I will show the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, the name you have profaned among them. Then the nations will know that I am the Lord, declares the Sovereign Lord, when I show myself holy throu…

Serious and rising threat to Israel: Unilateral Declaration of a Palestinian State by summer of 2011

Joel Rosenberg is one of the best known Bible prophecy experts, and is also well know as a prolific writer of both fiction and non-fiction books with Israel and the Middle-East central in his books themes.

Joel also has a blog where he reports on developments in what he refers to as the "epicentre".  The following report is an excellent summation of what the consequences may be if the world goes ahead and unilaterally declares a new Arab state called Palestine in 2011.

From the article: A serious new threat to the peace and security of Israel and the people of the epicenter is rapidly emerging — the prospect that the Palestinian leadership will unilaterally declare their own independent, sovereign state as early as the summer of 2011, and attempt to divide Jerusalem, and that the world will try to force Israel to accept this new state rather than require the Palestinians to sit down and negotiate a fair and just arrangement that both sides can accept. Make no mistake: a unil…

Another Huge Gas Field Confirmed Off Haifa Shore

There have been many news stories this year of oil and natural gas finds in Israel and off her coastline.These discoveries will make Israel a wealthy nation and a nation with a great deal more independence from the oil producing Arab world.
This, we believe, is one of the reasons why Israel will come under attack during the Gog/Magog war which the Prophet Ezekiel foretold. Lebanon is already casting envious eyes towards Israelis natural gas discoveries in the Mediterranean.And as we are told in Ezekiel’s prophecy, the invading nations will be accused of seeking to plunder Israel and her riches.
They will summon peoples to the mountain and there offer sacrifices of righteousness; they will feast on the abundance of the seas, on the treasures hidden in the sand." Deuteronomy 33:19 NIV
Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and all her villages will say to you, "Have you come to plunder? Have you gathered your hordes to loot, to carry off silver and gold, to take away liv…

Too many coincidences for the Bible to be mere fable

This is a great article coming from a columnist for the Washington Examiner.  The writer goes through the prophecies of the Old Testament Prophets with regards to Jesus Christ’s first coming, and explains that it would be impossible for anyone to have coincidentally fulfilled them as Jesus did.  Thus Jesus is who and what he said he was.  That being, God incarnate, God made flesh.

From the article:
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14 NIV If I had to single out one thing that played the greatest role in initially convincing me of the Bible's authenticity and the truth of Christianity, I'd choose the Old Testament prophecies, especially those concerning the Messiah. The specificity of some of the individual prophecies is powerfully probative, but the odds against so many of them being fulfilled in the person of Christ by coincidence are utterly…

Greek Bishop Equates Zionism to ‘Satanism’

The Jewish nation, God’s chosen people, has been hated by the world since day one.  That hatred continues to this day, even among so called friends of the Jewish people.  We believe that as Christians we are to support and bless Israel and its people.  However, there are many denominations within Christendom that have been feeding their flocks the lie that says the Jews forfeited their eternal birthright, and that the Church is the new Israel.  This is known as Replacement Theology, and is absolutely incorrect teaching, and has led many so called Christians to come to hate the Jews, even accusing them of sinister plans to take over the world, (Zionism).

A Greek Orthodox bishop from Greece, (noted in the article below), is but the latest in a long line of deluded and deceived "Christian" leaders that hold such a view of the Jews, to the point of hatred and anti-Semitism.  This was also the prevalent view held by Churches in Nazi Germany and was primarily why Hitler was able …

UFOs Buzz New Zealand After X-Files Release

We just posted a blog entry yesterday dealing with UFO's and Bible prophecy.  In that blog, we expressed our opinion that the UFO phenomenon we are seeing today may be setting the stage for the "strong delusion" that the bible speaks of.

For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie. 2 Thessalonians 2:11 NIV
Today, further articles on this growing phenomenon.

From the articles: Could New Zealand become a new hot spot for close encounters? Just days after New Zealand authorities released 2,000 pages of previously classified UFO X-Files, mysterious lights were spotted over three locations. New Zealand's news service reports that on Sunday, Boxing Day in that country, unexplained orange and red lights appeared above Napier, Taranaki and Christchurch. ___________________________  Mysterious "orangey and reddish lights" spotted in skies above Napier, Taranaki and Christchurch were a day too late to be Santa's s…

WikiLeaks Set To Reveal US-UFO War In Southern Ocean

UFO's and Bible prophecy, a pretty odd pairing, and some might say, heresy.  But hold on, didn't Ezekiel see the wheel? (Ezekiel 1:4-26), and were we not told in Genesis that a hybrid race of humans/fallen angels existed prior to and shortly after the Great flood? (Genesis 6:1-4)
Truth be told, there have been some pretty weird goings on in mankind’s history which relate to non-terrestrial contact.  Call it ET if you will, we believe it to be the Spirit world, and the nefarious ones at that.  We also believe that as the days of Noah were, (prior to the flood), so shall it be prior to Christ’s return to earth. (Matthew 24:37).
We have warned in previous posts that a great deception is coming.  We are of the opinion that this deception will centre on the exponentially growing UFO phenomenon, and it will be in the Worlds eyes a great explanation as to why millions of people suddenly vanished off the planet.
For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will bel…

CCTV 'used to monitor schoolchildren in toilets and changing rooms'

Great Britain, dubbed the "Big Brother Capital of the World" in one of the following articles, is much deserving of that dubious title if these articles are of any indication.  Hundreds of millions of dollars spent by individual cities on new CCTV cameras, schools setting up cameras in washrooms and classrooms, Scottish schools using bio-metric systems to keep track of children as young as four years old.  Where will it all end?
We keep warning that the days during the Tribulation will make the Police States that existed during Nazi Germany, the old Soviet Union, Stasi East Germany, and many other recent dictatorships, pale by comparison when compared to what will be at the disposal of the Antichrist and his minions.  Unfortunately, this new system will be the means for the Antichrist to track down and eliminate those that refuse to take his mark and worship him as God.
When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the wo…

Mocked Meteorologist Gets Last Laugh

For those of you buried under several feet of new snow, or shivering from unseasonably cold weather, we have for you a couple of noted Scientists debunking the religion of Global Warming which its adherents insist is still with us.
We have reiterated before that the whole Global Warming alarmist agenda of the last decade was nothing more than an attempt to implement a form of global governance;  Complete with a system of taxation, (carbon taxes), to fund this new form of world government.  Satan is working hard to set-up the foundations of what will eventually be the Kingdom of the Antichrist.  This global kingdom cannot simply appear out of thin air, but must be partially built prior to the entrance on the scene of the Man of Sin.  This is what the New World Order and this Global Warming agenda is all about.
Satan has done a masterful job of using perceived man-made changes in the weather to deceive people into accepting the idea of world governance.Don’t be fooled.

Uganda yellow fever outbreak kills more than 40

This has been a year with many reported deadly diseases taking many lives.  From Cholera outbreaks in Haiti and Nigeria, to Pneumonic plague and Yellow Fever in Uganda.   There have always been disease outbreaks throughout history with some, like the Black Plague of the Middle Ages, and the Spanish Flu epidemic of the early 20th century, taking millions of lives.  However, in this, the 21st century, one would have thought that deadly diseases would be a thing of the past.  Such is not the case, and in fact Bible prophecy warns that plagues and disease will be a major cause of death during the end-times and especially during the Great Tribulation.
When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth. Revelat…

China - taking over the World?

China's acendancy as a world power has been stunning.  From an insular, communist dictatorship under Mao Zedong form 1949 to 1976, to the second biggest economy in the world, slated to be number one in a couple of years.  All in a matter of a handful of decades.  This is another sure sign that we are near to the end of the Church age and at the door of this worlds next dispensation, (the Tribulation).  China, (and perhaps India), would most definitely fit the description of Kings of the East, with global economic clout and vast armies numbering in the hundreds of millions.
The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East. Revelation 16:12 NIV

From the articles: China's astonishing economic growth has put it on track to overtake America as the world's economic powerhouse within two years, a recent report claimed. But experts believed still be some years before America's leadership ro…

'No surprise if whole world recognizes Palestinian state'

The declaration of a negotiated two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians may or may not be the fulfillment of bible prophecy, (re Daniel 9:27 & Isaiah 28:15 - see both below).  But when the world declares "peace", which it surely would if such an agreement came to fruition, watch out!  That region of the world featuring Israel has and will continue to be God's time piece.  When Israel was reborn as a nation in 1948, the world was put on notice that the clock was ticking.  The very fact that the world is pushing for this new Palestinian state, to be achieved within one year, tells us that the clock is nearly run out.

While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labour pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:3 NIV
You boast, "We have entered into a covenant with death, with the grave we have made an agreement. When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by, it cannot touch us, …

Major 7.6 quake strikes western Pacific

You might be getting tired of hearing of yet more earthquakes.  But considering the frequency, magnitude and diversity of locations of all these quakes, we have to consider seriously one of the signs that Jesus told use to watch for prior to his return to this planet.

Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains. Mark 13:8 NIV
From the articles: A major 7.6-magnitude quake struck at a shallow depth under the sea near Vanuatu in the western Pacific early Sunday local time, the US Geological Survey said. The US's PacificTsunamiWarningCenter issued a tsunami alert for Vanuatu, Fiji and New Caledonia shortly after the quake, which the USGS said was 24 kilometres (15 miles) deep. _______________________________  More than 500 measurable earthquakes have been reported in central Arkansas since September 20, ranging in magnitude from a barely noticeable 1.8 to a very noticeable…

Radical Islam vs. Christianity

Christian persecution is on the rise in the Muslim world.  Radical Islam is not only a security threat to Western nations, but also a threat to life and limb to those Christians communities spread thin through the Islamic controlled parts of the world.  And those areas of the world are no longer just the Middle East, and Indonesia, but parts of many European cities are becoming no go zones for Christians and Jews alike due to Muslim extremism, (parts of Malmo, Sweden come immediately to mind.)  Please pray for our Christians brothers and sisters living under the threat of persecution around the world.
The following bible quotation is actually referencing the Jewish people, but could also easily be speaking of ChristianChurches in Muslim countries:
They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, a time is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is offering a service to God. John 16:2 NIV
Blessed are you when men hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name a…
