Mideast Panel: Is Current Unrest Biblical Signposts?

From the article: Although all eyes are on the Middle East right now, the world's Christians in particular are watching with great interest. What are Christians in the region saying about unfolding events, particularly in light of biblical prophecy?

Mideast Panel: Is Current Unrest Biblical Signposts?

Lavrov says Quartet should determine parameters of final settlement

The Prophet Zechariah was given a vision where he saw four horns, (meaning political powers), that scattered the people of Judah, Israel and Jerusalem.  Most expositors of this particular section of Zechariah attribute the four horns to empires past that scattered the Jewish people throughout the world.
Interesting that once again, a quartet of present day political powers, (America, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations), are attempting to divide the Holy Land, which is a very big no go when it comes to God and his desires for the land he gave as a permanent inheritance to the Jewish people.  America might want to reconsider their participation in this quartet considering what God has warned what he will do to nations that divide his land
Then I looked up, and there before me were four horns. I asked the angel who was speaking to me, “What are these?” He answered me, “These are the horns that scattered Judah, Israel and Jerusalem.” Then the LORD showed me four craftsmen. …

After the crisis, a worldwide rise in unrest?

The first article contained with this blog entry, (which asks whether a worldwide rise in unrest is on the horizon), pretty much sums up what we have warned in previous blog entries. That is, a coming economic restructuring of major proportions.
As the article warns, a perfect storm of international crisis is happening at the same time.  First, there is the very fragile world economy still recovering from the downfall of 2009.  Sovereign debt around the world is staggering and totally unsustainable.  Secondly, we have all the unrest in the middle-east which if it continues to grow will see oil prices climb to epic levels.  The increasing oil price pretty much slams shut any further economic recoveries, and in fact could cause world markets to collapse, taking the entire world economy with it.
The world is very quickly heading towards a coming economic collapse which the bible has foretold.  This will then usher in a new global economic system which will be under the control of the fu…

Nation of Islam event to include talk of UFOs

We strongly believe that the coming deception, or great lie that the bible warns about, will have much to do with the exponential growth in the UFO phenomenon. 
The following article is very interesting in that it actually mentions the Rapture of the Church in conjunction with the Nation of Islam and their belief in the existence of UFO's. 
Soon, the Bride of Christ, (the Church), will be called home by Jesus Christ.  The remainder of the world will be left to wonder what happened to the many people that disappeared from their midst.  An explanation will not be long in coming, as a much anticipated unveiling of extra-terrestrial life will be announced to the world, and the world will lap it up.  These new outer-worldly friends will announce that they are here to help human-kind usher in a new world order of peace and justice.  And those that disappeared were necessarily taken out of the way in order to facilitate the new order of things.
The bible clearly warns that there will …

Largest earthquake since 1969 rattles state

Residents of both Arkansas and Chile must be feeling just a little jittery of late, what with all the recent earthquake activity in their vicinities.
Prophecy Sign - Earthquakes in divers places
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: Residents across the state of Arkansas were awoken by the strongest earthquake yet Sunday night. According the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), a preliminary magnitude 4.7 hit 4 miles northeast of Greenbrier just after 11:00 p.m.It was felt across the state as well as into Missouri and Mississippi. Two aftershocks where reported afterwards, a 3.8 magnitude then a 3.6 magnitude. So far, there have been no reports of damage or injuries. ____________________________  A magnitude 6.0 earthquake struck Chile on Sunday evening, the U.S. Geological Survey said. It was centered 23 miles south of Concepcion in southern…

Bright Prospects for Comet Elenin?

Image
Come September, there should be quite an astronomical display in our skies as a recently discovered comet passes between the Earths orbit of the Sun.
Prophecy Sign - Signs in the Sun, Moon and Stars
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: It doesn't look like much now — just a tiny, 19th-magnitude smudge tucked away in southwestern Virgo — but a newly discovered comet could become something special 10 months from now.
What's gotten hearts beating a little faster since the discovery is that Comet Elenin is still more than 4 astronomical units (375 miles) from the Sun and headed inbound. It's still early, and the calculated orbit is certain to change in the weeks ahead as more position measurements are made, but right now it appears that the comet's perihelion will occur well inside Earth's orbit, about 0.45 a.u. (42 million miles) from…

Prophecy Sign:  Earthquakes and Sciesmic activity
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 article: The sudden appearance early in the morning of an enormous crack, measuring 100 meters wide and three kilometers long, caused confusion among residents of the Huacullani district in the Chucuito province, department of Puno. The exact cause of the crack in the earth still unknown. Peru’s geophysical institute ruled out the occurrence of an earthquake in the region, but what is clear is that the ground opened up and large blocks of earth can be observed scattered throughout the area

Iranian warships arrive in Syria, witness says

Syria and Israel mix about as well as oil and water.  The two states have been pitted in battle on three occasions since Israel became a nation in 1948.  The Arab/Israel war of 1948/49, the Six Day war of 1967, and the Yom Kippur war of 1973.  None of those conflicts went well for Syria, with the Syrians even giving ground to Israel with the loss of the Golan Heights, (still a major issue with Syria).
Well it would appear Syria has not learned her lesson well, and is still looking for a fight with the Jewish State.  Recent news reports indicate that Syria may still be working on nuclear programs, and has now allowed two warships from Iran to dock at her Mediterranean port of Latakia.  Israel considers the Iranian ships in the Mediterranean to be a provocation, and more so as the ships drop anchor in Syria.  Both Iran and Syria are sworn enemies of Israel.
The bible tells us that a future war involving Syria and Israel will once again not go well for Syria.  In fact, the capital of Syr…

'World economy will fall if revolts spread to S. Arabia'

Yesterday we wrote about the effect of skyrocketing oil prices on the world economy.  We noted that it would result in a cascading effect worldwide, and would greatly affect third world nations in particular.
Well today we have an article from the Jerusalem Post which says the exact same thing we said in our blog post of yesterday:  Should Saudi Arabia fall victim to the same unrest and revolutions that have swept through the middle-east, it would cause both the starvation of millions of people in the third world, and a collapse of world markets.  Pretty scary stuff, and all because oil prices climb to unprecedented levels.
It's amazing how fast things can happen, and how clearly bible prophecy can come to fulfillment.  Jesus told us that famines would follow uprisings and revolutions, and the Apostle John recorded in the book of Revelation that food prices would become so expensive, that a days wages would only purchase enough food for a day.
Nation will rise against nation, and …

Mideast $400 Oil Imminent With Mideast Upheaval

Image
Gee, the people in a couple of oil rich nations decide to throw off their shackles, and look what happens....all hell breaks loose.

So what will happen if these insurrections and revolutions keep spreading throughout the middle-east?  Some prognosticators are now worried that Saudi Arabia, which produces 20% of the world’s oil requirements, may be next on the list.  Look what is happening now;  Oil is around $100 per barrel, and could skyrocket if Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi goes through with his threat to sabotage the Libyan oil infrastructure.  Some 1.8 million barrels of oil flow out of Libya on a daily basis into mostly Europe.

Should oil hit $150, $200 or more per barrel, it would set off a cascading effect across the world.  Food prices would become exorbitant in third world nations causing further mass demonstrations and revolutions, (see our other blog entry today about the spreading protests).  There would be mass job cuts as industry down-sized due to the rising produc…

Iran's president: Mideast upheaval will reach US

So the seeds of protests, insurrections and revolutions are starting to spread from the middle-east to other parts of the world.  Greece, which already went through major revolts last year, is back at it again with 30,000 people rioting in the streets. In Delhi India 40,000 people took part in a rally to protest rising food prices and unemployment, while in China some are trying to start up the same type of protests, (without much success as yet).And finally, the Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has warned that unrest will spread throughout Europe and the West, (we actually agree with him on that point).

Did Jesus know what he was talking about or what, when he told us that these types of events would be a major sign to watch for, just prior to his return.


“When you hear of wars and uprisings, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away.” Then he said to them: “Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom”. Luke 21:1…

Medvedev sees `fires for decades' in Arab world

Image
Well there's at least one world leader that is seeing the middle-east uprisings for what they are, and that doesn't include Western style democracy anytime soon.  Russian President, Dmitry Medvedev is warning that out of the chaos we are presently seeing in nations such as Egypt, Libya, Bahrain and Yemen, may come an even greater problem; that of a rise to power of fanatical leader with extremist views.  Hey that sounds an awful lot like what Iran has today in its little dictator, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

So while most of the clueless Western media applauds the events in the middle-east as some sort of Berlin Wall scenario, (rather than a Iran 1979 situation), the rest of us with a clue can see what is coming.  How do we know what is coming?  Because we have read a book written thousands of years ago that has proven itself in the past with fulfilled prophecy, and continues proving itself to this very day. That book of course is our Bible.

For instance, did you know that the Bible…

Stakelbeck on Terror: Live from Jerusalem

From the article: On this week's special edition of Stakelbeck on Terror, CBN News is in Israel for analysis of the latest events in the region. CBN's Middle East Bureau Chief Chris Mitchell joins host Erick Stakelbeck in Jerusalem for a closer look at what lies ahead for Israel. Will the Muslim Brotherhood take charge in Egypt? How close is Iran to acquring a nuclear weapon? Is war coming soon to the Middle East? And what are Israeli officials saying? Watch for their unique analysis, including a special look at how Palestinain terrorism affects the average Israeli.

Giant locusts threaten New South Wales crops

Plagues of giant locust destroying vast swaths of crops;  Are we talking about ancient Egypt?  No we are not, but instead Australia, 2011.  This sure sounds like pestilence to us.

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 article:
A rare, giant breed of locusts has the potential to destroy crops in NSW overnight, the State Government says. The spur-throated locusts is a mainly tropical species found in Queensland and the Northern Territory but warm and humid weather has drawn them into NSW.Primary Industries Minister Steve Whan says the Government has a plan of attack to help northwestern NSW farmers control the largest outbreak in 40 years. "The much larger spur-throated locust is a ferocious eater and can completely destroy a crop overnight," Mr Whan said in a statement.

Iranian President: Outdated world order on verge of collapse

Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a Twelver.  Just what is that you may ask?  A Twelver is a Muslim of the Shiite branch of Islam who believes that soon, the hidden or Twelfth Imam will make his entrance on the world scene.  Believers such as Ahmadinejad, love seeing all the uprisings occurring throughout the middle-east, as it is the belief of these people that out of chaos will come their Messiah, (this Twelfth Imam).
It's interesting to note just how close this Twelfth Imam matches up with the Antichrist of the Bible.  (Here's a link for more on that:  http://www.666soon.com/antichrist_and_the_12th_imam_or_.htm )
So based on all this, it's not surprising to see how excited the Iranian President is at the prospect of a coming New World Order, led of course by his coming Messiah, the Twelfth Imam.

From the article:
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Tuesday that the traditional and outdated world order is now on the verge of collapse.President Ahmadinejad made the…

Indiana Experts Wary Of Earthquake Swarm

There has been a lot of earthquake activity of late, including of course the devastating quake in New Zealand that has seen at least 75 deaths.  And then there have been all the recent tremors over the last 6 months that have been shaking the Mid-West of America.  What's up with that? Matthew, Mark and Luke all recounted the words of Jesus Christ when he said that the world would see many earthquakes in diverse places just prior to his return to this earth.Is that what we are now seeing?

From the articles: A half-dozen quakes shook one Arkansas community on Monday morning, with more than 700 recorded in Faulkner County, Arkansas within the past six months. Although most of the tremors are too small to be felt by humans, experts across the Midwest are trying to find out why they are occurring. "This is absolutely a phenomenon, an interest to seismologists in this part of the country," said Michael Hamburger, a professor of geological sciences at IndianaUniversity. "We&…

EU tells Israel: Mideast turmoil makes peace talks imperative

There will come a day when Israel will enter into a covenant of peace which will have a seven year time span.  This agreement is detailed in Daniel 9:27.  This seven year period will begin what we know as the Tribulation period, (the last 3 1/2 years being called the Great Tribulation).  We also know that the one that will broker this deal will be the Man of Sin, (Antichrist), who will rise out of the revived Roman Empire, the current European Union.
It is therefore of great importance to be aware of news headlines like these that announce that the European Union is stepping up its pressure on Israel to reach a peace agreement with the Palestinians by September of this year.  We can't say for sure that such an agreement, if reached by September, would be the covenant spoken of in the book of Daniel. 
In fact, it's our belief that no such agreement will ever be reached for a two-state solution.  We believe that a collapse in the peace talks, along with the current upheavals i…

The Middle East and Then the World

Image
It's absolutely amazing to see all that is going on in the middle-east and North Africa.  First Tunisia, then Egypt, and now Yemen, Libya, Bahrain, and Morocco.  Next, perhaps Saudi Arabia?  Who knows what is coming next.  Or perhaps there are a group of people who know just what is happening and why.
Call it a conspiracy theory if you will, but many people have come to the conclusion that super secretive groups such as the Bilderbergers, Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations are all behind the revolutions and uprisings currently going on throughout the world.  All with one purpose - to install a system of Global Governance.
The emergence on the world scene by a future global world ruler, (the Antichrist), will not come without the aid of such groups who will have completed all the leg work to redesign the world, and make it feasible for world government to be set-up, with a global leader at it's head.  This has been the plan of men since the days of Nimrod …

Deadly quake rocks New Zealand, topples buildings

We've already posted a blog entry today regarding several earthquakes and a volcanic eruption occurring in different parts of the world.  Well only hours after that blog entry we see more earthquakes.This time a major earthquake has struck Christchurch New Zealand with major damage and fatalities, and a minor quake has shaken buildings in the capital of the Philippines, (the Philippines being where today’s volcano erupted).
What on earth is happening??  Well it was Jesus himself that told us that just prior to his return to this world, we would see earthquakes occurring throughout the world, and we would presume volcanic eruptions as well.  While what is happening now is not the time of Jacobs trouble, or the great and terrible day of the Lord, that day is coming, and soon.  We are being warned.
We ask you to pray for the nation and peoples of New Zealand, as they deal with the aftershocks of this major earthquake.  And we also ask you to consider your current relationship with J…

Thousands flee as Philippine volcano erupts

A busy couple of days with earthquake and volcanic activity.  We found the 5.9 earthquake that shook the entrance to the Suez Canal just prior to the Iranian warships going through to be very interesting.  A little message from God himself on his displeasure with the Iranian provocations?


Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. Matthew 24:7 NIV
From the articles:
Thousands of people in the Philippines fled their homes as a volcano erupted on Monday, sending a spectacular column of ash high into the sky, residents said. The eruption of Bulusan, a 1,559-metre (5,115-foot) volcano, turned mid-morning into night for about 20 minutes across largely farming areas around its slopes, regional army spokesman Major Harold Cabunoc told AFP. _________________________________  A strong 6.4-magnitude earthquake has struck in waters south of Fiji. There are no immediate reports of injuries or damage and no tsunami warning has …

Mexico's drug war leaves ghost towns in its wake

The current drug war going on in Mexico is perhaps an example of the fulfillment of two prophecies from the bible:  Violence filling the earth and an unrepentant drug crazed society.

Jesus told his disciples that just prior to his return, the earth would be much like it was during the days of Noah prior to the great flood, (Matthew 24:37).  Just how bad was it?  So bad that is grieved God's heart that he had created mankind:

Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. Genesis 6:11-13 NIV
We are also told in the book of Revelation that some people, (even after suffering greatly during the Tribulation), will simply not repent of their "magical acts".  The original word here is the Greek w…
