Queensland warning over Cyclone Yasi

Whatever it is that you Americans and Australians did to get God slightly perturbed at you, please leave it at home before crossing the border into Canada.  Thank you very much.

In all seriousness, could these news headlines be any closer to a fit for what Jesus warned would occur just prior to his return?  Now I know a record setting snow storm over America and a record setting Cyclone over Australia are not the "tossing of the sea".  However we believe that that particular portion of Jesus warning was telling us the world would be all consumed by any and all weather related anomalies that batter the globe during the last 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 articles: The Australian state of Queensland could be facing one of the worst cyclones in its history, as it works to recover from devastating floods. State Premier Anna Bligh said that…

Muslim Brotherhood Wants War With Israel

Prior to the events currently take place in Egypt, (and other Middle-East nations), one of the few things holding back another middle-east war were the peace treaties in place between Egypt and Israel and Jordan and Israel.  However that could all change should Egypt fall into the hands of the radical Muslim Brotherhood who have a serious case of hating everything Israel.  And should Egypt fall that quickly into the hands of such a radical bunch, then Jordan would not be far behind.  This would set up a situation where Israel would be surrounded on all sides by enemies intent on her destruction.

Are we now seeing the final stages of setup for what many bible prophecy observers call the Psalm 83 war?

See how your enemies growl, how your foes rear their heads. With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish. “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.” With one mind they plot together; they form an …

Seismic fault beneath us is ‘fully loaded’ after 311 years

So many recent volcano’s blasting forth , or as in the case of the Yellowstone super volcano, showing ominous signs of life.  Every other week another 7.0 or greater earthquake rattles some part of the globe.  And now scientists warning that earthquake fault zones are nearing their stress limits and we should expect a major earthquake soon.

It's almost as if God is giving warning to the inhabitants of this old earth to wake up and repent, for judgment is near and could be unleashed at anytime.  Only the hand of God holds back what is yet to come.  One of events to occur during the days of the Great Tribulation, (the last 3 1/2 years), is dreadful and terrible seismic activity that literally "moves every mountain and island out of its place", (Revelation 6:14)

From the article:
As if you didn’t have enough worries, here is one more to add to that massive list:

Signs of the end times?

Are you wondering just what the uprisings in Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen, Lebanon and Jordan means in terms of bible prophecy?  We have tracked down a handful of excellent op/ed articles that break down what this means and how it will impact upon middle-east affairs and upon Israel.Time is short, and events are moving along quicker and quicker as we near the end of this dispensation.
From the articles: While everyone is afraid of Iran's build up of nuclear weapons -- bombs that are capable of reaching Israel -- Iran is not waiting for a nuclear bomb. Instead, they are stirring up trouble on every side of Israel's borders. All of this creates a perfect environment for toppling current regimes and replacing them with anti-Israeli militant Islamic governments, thus tightening the noose around Israel's neck.  Dr. Michael Youssef ____________________________________  In the past several days, the dynamic of the protests in Egypt has changed rapidly, and not for the better. What started…

Loneliest Man in Davos Foresees 2015 Bank Crisis While Global Elites Party

A financial catastrophe in 2015?  Such an event is coming, it's only a matter of when.  How do we know this?  Because the bible tells us it will happen.  Both the book of James and Revelation foretell of coming times where an economic tsunami will sweep across the world.

Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. James 5:1-3 NIV
The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one buys their cargoes anymore— cargoes of gold, silver, precious stones and pearls; fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet cloth; every sort of citron wood, and articles of every kind made of ivory, costly wood, bronze, iron and marble; cargoes of cinnamon and spice, of incense, myrrh and frankincense, of wine and olive oil, of fine flour and wh…

Russia wants to foster ties with Iran

Yet another example of the alliance that is being constructed between present day Russia, (Magog), and Iran, (Persia).  Russia will become more and more tied to it's allies in the Middle-East, and ultimately will have no choice but to come to their aid when war does break out. (The hook in the jaw?). The Prophet Ezekiel was privy to events that would unfold during the last days.  He recorded these prophecies of God, for all to read and understand.  It has only been the generation we now live in that has been able to witness the actual beginnings of the fulfillment of these prophecies.

The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshek and Tubal; prophesy against him and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshek and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army—your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde …

Cashless Scoiety: ‘Facebook Nation’ unveils its new currency

There is coming a day in the not so distant future when a charismatic, (but ruthlessly evil), global world leader will have control of most, if not all, the worlds economic structure.  Having the ability to control who is able to both buy and sell.  This control will be dependent on consolidation of power, by both restructuring the world economy, (the 10 kingdoms given a short period of power), and the elimination of sovereign world currencies.  It only makes sense that transactions in the future will be done by an electronic/digital currency system, thus making it very easy to control the ability to conduct day to day commerce.

The world is being educated to accept this new idea of a cashless digital system.  Now the largest social networking service in the world is launching a new cashless monetary program.  No double millions of Facebook users will be conditioned to the benefits of a digital currency system and will readily accept what the future Antichrist has planned.

Egypt shows how easily Internet can be silenced

Right now the internet is a forum for the free exchange of ideas.  Granted, the internet is certainly not without is insidious side, (pornography for instance), but still a site like this one can easily be set up and opinions presented, even if those opinions sometimes question government.
However that will all soon end.  Governments and authorities are working to regulate the internet. With these new powers the authorities could easily shut down the entire internet or silence parts thereof that they don't like. Just as is happening now in Egypt and has happened in China.
It is entirely plausible and expected that at some point during the Tribulation period, the internet will be scrubbed clean of any and all sites that attempt to expose who and what the Antichrist is. From the article: The move by Egyptian authorities to seal off the country almost entirely from the Internet shows how easily a state can isolate its people when telecoms providers are few and compliant. In an attempt …

Muslims post death threats on doors of Christian homes

As the Muslim world becomes more and more radicalized, Christian persecution goes up, and the world’s condemnation of Islam’s treatment of religious minorities becomes next to non-existent.Please pray for all Christians suffering under persecution throughout the world – whether in autocratic China or radical Islamic Pakistan, and parts in between. From the article: Officials in the south Ethiopian city of Besheno are looking the other way as Muslim mobs in the city put death threats on the doors of Christian villagers, according to organizations that work in the area. The door-mounted death threats are only the latest incidents in a series of acts of intimidation that include taking away church property, beating evangelists and killing family members. International Christian Concern's Jonathan Racho says the list of violent acts against Christians is growing. "Christians in the southern Ethiopian city of Besheno are being harassed and physically abused after Muslims posted not…

Free Speech on Trial in Austria … and Europe

So while Christians are persecuted in Islamic nations, those that would seek to warn others of the Islamic threat in the West are silenced by ridiculous new laws that end free speech. From the article: The “hate speech” trial of the Austrian housewife and anti-Islam activist Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff resumed at a Vienna courthouse on January 18, following a two-month break in the hearings. Sabaditsch-Wolff, who has been charged with “incitement of hatred” and “denigrating religious teachings” after giving a series of seminars about the dangers of radical Islam, faces a possible three year prison sentence. Her case, which is eerily similar to the one involving the Dutch politician Geert Wilders, reflects the growing use of lawfare, the malicious use of European courts to silence politically incorrect speech about Islam.

Iran cleric praises new 'Islamic Mideast'

The political dynamics in the Mid-East are changing before our eyes, setting up a situation that could usher in the fulfillment of bible prophecy.  In fact the events now occurring in Egypt are fulfilling prophesies foretold by the Prophet Isaiah.  We would highly recommend you check out the following link to an article by noted bible prophecy expert, Bill Salus.  Bill does a great job of showing how Isaiah under the inspiration of God foretold the current uprising in Egypt, and how this will impact upon the war prophecies contained in Ezekiel, Psalms, Jeremiah, etc. 
I Will Set Egyptians Against Egyptians"   
It shouldn't surprise any of us to see the upheaval in the Arab world, and the calls for an Islamic Middle East.  Radical Islam is an enemy of Christianity and of the Jews.  These nations that share this volatile part of the world with Israel will in the very near future, align together to seek the destruction of Israel.  Given what we are now seeing in Egypt, Lebanon,…

Japan on alert after volcano's biggest eruption in 50 years

Yet another volcano rumbles to life.  Iceland, Indonesia, Russia, Africa, Central and South America have all seen volcanic activity in the last year.  Makes you wonder just what is happening within the bowels of the earth.  Is God readying this planet for the coming judgements foretold in the book of Revelation?

Don't wait.  Make your decision for Christ today. 

From the article: A one-mile cordon has been established around a volcano on MountKirishima after it erupted scattering rocks and ash across southern Japan and sending smoke billowing 5,000ft into the air. The Meteorological Agency raised the volcanic alert to level 3 as ash today continued to spew from Shinmoedake on Japan's southernmost main island of Kyushu, and residents have been banned from going within a mile of the volcano following its worst eruption in 50 years.

Egypt's protests enter 3rd day, ominous for regime

Egypt, (the Hagrites), is one of the nations included in the war prophecy of Psalm 83.  This group of Arab nations that immediately border Israel conspire together to formulate a plan to destroy the name of Israel forever.  However, up to this point in time, there existed one small problem with the inclusion of Egypt in such a plan;  The fact that Egypt currently has a peace treaty with Israel that has existed since 1979.

With the events unfolding in Egypt the past couple of days, could we eventually see the removal of the present Egyptian leadership of Hosni Mubarak, and the implementation of a more radical Islamic regime in Egypt?  One with a major hate for the Jewish nation such as the Muslim Brotherhood?

With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish. “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.” With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you— the tents of Edom and the Ishm…

Soros Warns Euro Crisis May Divide Continent

Both the Prophet Daniel, and the Apostle John saw a future world empire that would exist during the years of the Tribulation.  A hint was given to Daniel and the rest of us as to where this world empire would begin its emergence.  Daniel was told that the Man of Sin would arise from the peoples who would destroy the Jewish Temple, (Daniel 9:26).  (This second Temple was but a dream when the Angel told this prophecy to Daniel). 
Several hundred years later the Roman armies under Emperor Vespasian sacked Jerusalem and destroyed this second of Temples.  This is where most prophecy observers derive the idea that the Antichrist will emerge from a reconstituted Roman Empire.  Therefore it’s important to watch what is happening in Europe.
Recent world headlines indicate that the European Union is on shaky ground with some of the weaker members requiring bailouts.  It would not be surprising if within the next several months we see a major re-organizing of the European Union, into a much mo…

Turkish-Iranian Ties Flourish in New Era

It's amazing to watch bible prophecy unfold before you.  Those of us that study the prophecies pertaining to end-time events and then read the world headlines of the day, are often times shocked at just how close fulfillment of these prophecies seem to be.  Case in point; The prophecy of a great army lead by a leader from the Northern most parts beyond the Holy Land.  This army will attempt to invade Israel with the goal of wiping out the Jewish nation and taking her riches, (Ezekiel 38/39).

The parties to this ambitious plan, (which is foretold in the bible to end in utter failure), includes the following nations with their current recognizable names:

Magog - Most likely Russia
Persia - Iran for certain
Cush - Sudan - likely the radical Islamic North Sudan
Put - Libya, land of Muammar al-Gaddafi - need we say more?
Gomer - The Islamic Eastern regions of the Asian continent
Beth Togarmah - Turkey and Armenia

When we see who the players are and then read all the recent articles that…

Iran 1 year away from bomb

Now that the recent negotiations between various national political representatives and the Iranian regime over Iran’s nuclear ambitions have collapse, all eyes turn to Israel and what the Jewish states response will be.  We noted yesterday that a member of the IDF, (Israel Defense Forces), feels Israel has no choice but to initiate an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities.  Now we see why.  The Israeli Military Intelligence Chief estimates that Iran could have a nuclear weapon within 12 to 24 months.  Israel will simply not allow such a threat to exist within striking distance of her borders.

We know that a "war" is already being staged in this volatile area, as it is suspected that Israel launched the Stuxnet worm to mess with Iran’s computer networks, and we also know that quite a few Iranian scientists have been, shall we say, liquidated or whacked.  But even after all this, Iran plows ahead with its plans.  It is now only a matter of time before an assault is made on the…

'Time will probably come' when Israel launches attack on Iran

Yesterday we wrote in a blog that Israel may soon send in units to destroy the capability of Iran in its pursuit of nuclear weapons.  We suggested that such an event might be the hook in the jaw for Iran to enter into an alliance, (Gog/Magog War of Ezekiel 38 & 39), to attempt to wipe out the nation of Israel.
Here in this article, we have an Israeli IDF soldier saying that Israel has no choice but to launch a strike in the very near future to destroy the Iranian threat of nuclear weapons.  This would no doubt infuriate Iran and set the plans in motion for this unholy alliance of Gog/Magog combatants to come against Israel in this prophesied war.

From the article:
It is only a matter of time before Israel launches an attack on Iran to prevent it from developing nuclear arms, a soldier in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) told a university crowd on Monday. “I firmly believe that the time will probably come when Israel launches a strike on Iran,” Benjamin Anthony, a sergeant and heavy m…

Is the world's largest super-volcano set to erupt for the first time in 600,000 years?

Prophecy Sign:  Great Earthquakes and other major sciesmic events

I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. Revelation 6:12-14 NIV

From the articles:
The super-volcano beneath YellowstoneNational Park in Wyoming has been rising at a record rate since 2004. It would explode with a force a thousand times more powerful than the Mount St Helens eruption in 1980. Spewing lava far into the sky, a cloud of plant-killing ash would fan out and dump a layer 10ft deep up to 1,000 miles away. Two-thirds of the U.S. could become uninhabitable as toxic air sweeps through it, grounding thousands of flights and forcing millions to leave their homes. This is the nightmare that scientists a…

Could extraterrestrial intelligence sway religious beliefs?

Prophecy Sign:  A great deception

For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. 2 Thessalonians 2:10-11 NIV
They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. 2 Timothy 4:4 NIV

From the article:
The discovery of extraterrestrial life might not shake people's faith in their religious beliefs, but it could lead them to wonder if Jesus Christ had incarnations on alien planets, scientists and theologians say. 
There are many open questions as to how people on Earth might view beliefs from space. Could advances that alien civilizations could bring be perceived much like a secular form of salvation? Might advanced civilizations and their perhaps equally advanced philosophies make our religions feel primitive? Alien religions could draw converts, and if there are many points of agreement between religions on Earth and from space, one m…

World 'needs global food system overhaul'

Prophecy Sign:  Food shortages and food inflation

When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “Two pounds of wheat for a day’s wages, and six pounds of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!” Revelation 6:5-6 NIV
From the articles: The world needs fundamental changes to the global food system to feed the expanding population, said a British government report on how to feed the planet until 2050. The study led by Professor John Beddington, the British government's chief scientific adviser, said that with the global population forecast to reach nine billion in 40 years' time, radical changes were needed to a system already struggling to feed the existing population. "With the global population set to rise and food prices likely to i…

Stakelbeck on Terror: The Arab-Nazi Alliance in the Holocaust

From the article: On this week's special edition of Stakelbeck on Terror, CBN News sits down with bestselling author and investigative journalist Edwin Black to discuss his new book, The Farhud. The book outlines the history of Islamic anti-Semitism in the Middle East, including the 1941 organized massacre of Iraqi Jews in Baghdad known as The Farhud, or "violent dispossession." Watch as Black breaks down the larger Arab Muslim role in the Nazi Holocaust, which included an active alliance between the leader of the Palestinians and Adolf Hitler, and how this history still affects the Middle East today.

Iran Nuke Talks End With No Deal

Iran, (Persia), is prophesied to be a major player in end-times events.  Iran is one of the nations in the Gog/Magog alliance of combatants that will come against Israel in a latter day war.  A war where God will perform a mighty miracle and wipe out this army, saving Israel and restoring the name of God in the world.
But aside from all the current rhetoric, why would Iran look to take out Israel in a full-scale war?  Could it be that in the not too distance future, Israel may sweep in and destroyed all of Iran’s nuclear facilities and her ability to create nuclear weapons?  That would certainly provoke the Iranian leadership and might be one of the hooks in the jaw that draws Iran into this war.  As the world twiddles its collective thumbs over just what to do with this petulant nation of Iran, Israel may just have to take matters into her own hands to resolve the issue once and for all.

The collapse of another attempt at international outreach to Iran has left world…

Mexico to pioneer iris technology on ID cards

While we are not sure exactly what the future Mark of the Beast will be, we do know that it will be an identifier which will show the bearer of the mark to be in allegiance with the Antichrist resulting in the authorization of the bearer of that mark to buy and sell.  Such a mark would not be counterfeited.  We can see this mark being used to authenticate the bearer as being whom they say they are, and that they have willingly accepted the Antichrist in his claim to be God.  Authentication could be done by including bio-metric information, in an insertable RFID chip, which could also be used for the purposes of buying and selling.  The actual part of the mark that identifies the bearer as belonging to the Antichrist is still the mystery.  Might it be the insertion of a strand of DNA that permanently marks an individual for life?  Perhaps a DNA marker that has a tie-in into the number of the beast?
When we read articles like this one, we know we must be very close to the end of this dis…
