Hezbollah Spread Out over Southern Lebanon

The buildup towards the prophetic war of Psalm 83 continues.  Hezbollah now have hundreds of bunkers and underground facilities scattered throughout southern Lebanon.  This installations are well stocked will weapons.  There are also reports that both Hezbollah and Hamas have bought millions of dollars worth of Lybian chemical weapon shells from rebels who overran the military intallations in the current Lybian civil war.  Nice to know just where all the western aid that is being directed to Hamas governed Gaza is ending up.

From the news articles: Since the end of the Second Lebanon War in the summer of 2006, Hezbollah has entrenched itself deeply in 270 villages throughout southern Lebanon. IDF (Israel Defense Forces) intelligence estimates the Iranian proxy has constructed some 550 bunkers stocked with a variety of weapons, 300 underground facilities and 100 weapons warehouses for missiles, rockets, and other war materiel. ________________________________  Senior Libyan rebel “offic…

Surge in Satanism sparks rise in demand for exorcists, says Catholic Church

Prophecy sign:  Increased demonic worship

Bible prophecy indicates that mankind will become ever more infatuated with demonic worship.  In face, so immersed will some become that they will refuse to repent, even in the face of the dramatic and awful events of the Tribulation:

The rest of mankind who were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood—idols that cannot see or hear or walk. Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts. Revelation 9:20-21 NIV
From the article:
The conference in Rome has brought together more than 60 Catholic clergy as well as doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, teachers and youth workers to discuss how to combat the dangers of Devil-worship. Organisers say the rise of Satanism has been dangerously underestimated in recent years. "There's been a revival," said Gabriele Nanni, …

World faces ‘epochal’ change equivalent to that of 1989: UN chief

So just how clueless are they at the United Nations?  You don't have to answer that, we already know.  So the U.N. Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon thinks it's grrreeeat what is happening in the countries of the middle-east.  All these wonderful pro-democracy movements will now usher in a great shift in global history. Oh they will, but not the kind of wonderful utopia that Ban Ki-moon and his ilk are shooting for.
Instead we have Al Queda all in a twitter over the prospects of wide open doors for them to walk through and establish their own idea of utopia.  A radical, Islamic Caliphate that will work to remove the Jewish state and to tame the Great Satan, (that being America), and the rest of us infidels.
We will say it again; bible prophecy warns that at the time of the end, a Southern based coalition of nations will arise under a King known as the King of the South, (south of course referring to their location with regards to Israel).  See Daniel 11:40

Japan earthquake accelerated Earth's rotation, study finds

We blogged about this shortly after the Japanese earthquake, but since we have this article today, it bears repeating.  Bible prophecy seems to indicate that near to the end of the Great Tribulation, the days and nights are actually shortened by 1/3.  How would that happen?  We previously noted that the last three big earthquakes, (Sumatra in 2004, Chile in 2010 and Japan, 2011), all affected the rotation of the earth, and have shortened the days, (if only by microseconds).
Bible prophecy tells us that the earthquakes we are seeing now are nothing in comparison to what's coming.  In fact the bible informs us that an earthquake of such magnitude will occur during the Tribulation that the islands will be moved from their place and the mountains as well.  Such a 2012 end of the world type event would most certainly mess with the rotational spin of the earth.  Perhaps even shortening the days by 1/3?(Or might it just be that God says you’re all on a power saving program now and you’r…

Egypt's new FM wants ties with Iran

Two of the most prominent and powerful middle-east nations are looking to formalize ties.  That being Egypt and Iran. Iran already holds much sway and influence over Syria and Lebanon, and has its fingers in Bahrain.  Egypt being the largest Muslim Arab nation in the mid-east, will have much influence with its neighboring Arab states once the Egyptians stabilize their new government after their November elections.
These two countries are both in future bible prophecy, with each being a part of various alliances of nations that come against Israel at the time of the end.  Egypt, (the Hagarites) will be part of the Psalm 83 alliance of nations, and Iran, (Persia), will be a major player in the Ezekiel Gog/Magog alliance, (Ezekiel 38/39).
As unrest spreads across the middle-east, the door becomes wide open for more radical Islamic movements to take over.  These movements have much in common and some are in fact direct offshoots of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, (Hamas for instance).  …

UN chief: End occupation, divide Jerusalem

It's been a busy day for the world’s most clueless United Nations leader.  First he tells everyone on his rubber chicken circuit that the middle-east uprisings are all good, nothing to worry about here, (see our other blog entry today).  Then he informs everyone that what Israel is doing in East Jerusalem and the West Bank is just bad; lets jump all over Israel now.  OK.  We wouldn't want to be in Ban Ki-moons loafers when God Almighty asks him about his policies towards Israel.  (read Joel 3)
This is just another example of the pressure that is being exerted on Israel in order to have the Jewish state cave to the demands of the Palestinians.  However, you have got to hand it to the moxy of the Jewish people.  They have now said that if the U.N. wants to play the game of unilateral declarations, Israel would then go ahead and unilaterally annex every major settlement in the so called "occupied" territories.  Oh that will sit will with the Palestinians and every othe…

Iran Leaders: The Coming is Upon Us – Israel Shall be Destroyed!

Image
If you have 28 minutes to spare, may we suggest you watch this video to learn more about the Muslim Shia interpretation of the Hadith's writings concerning the last days.  The video is in Arabic, (or is it Persian?), irregardless, there are English subtitles.  This video will very much enlighten you to just what this sect of Islam thinks of the current events in the world, and how close this sect thinks we are to the end.  According to their interpretation of the Hadith, very close.The uprisings in the middle-east are signs to them that their Mahdi is about to enter the world. For Christians, this Mahdi and the biblical Antichrist will likely be one and the same.

From the article:
According to the Hadith in the age of The Coming, a revolution takes place in Iran. This is a key sign indicating that the reappearance is near and serves as the initial preparation in the worldwide movement for The Coming of the last messiah. Based on this belief, the leaders of Iran see it as their duty…

Israel threatens unilateral steps if UN recognizes Palestinian state

This coming September may well be a tipping point in history.  The world is pressuring Israel to accept the fact that a new Palestinian state will be unilaterally declared based on the pre-1967 borders.  Israel claims such a declaration will violate previous accords, and is warning that they will take steps of their own if the UN, and the EU proceed with such a plan.

Israel knows that any acceptance of borders based on the pre-1967 borders means suicide for the Jewish state.  Israel also knows that the ultimate goal of the Palestinians and every other Muslim Arab is to wipe Israel off the map, replacing it with a new Arab Islamic State called Palestine.  It's likely there will be a standoff come September between Israel and just about everyone other government on the planet.  The currently in the throws of revolution, middle-east nations will of course be incensed by Israel’s seeming intransigence.  Some of these nations, such as Iran, Syria and Hezbollah of Lebanon, are already l…

Gay families in Disney movies only a matter of time

Homosexuality.  Not a topic we generally blog about.  It is for sure one of many sins that the bible condemns and warns us to stay away from.  The reason we choose these two articles today is just to show how prevalent and common place this lifestyle and the attitudes towards it have become.  While we never condemn anyone living outside the life that God desires for us, it must be pointed out that the prevalence towards the Gay lifestyle is just another sign that we are living in the very end of days, and close to the coming of Christ Jesus to this world.
It's not likely that anyone living such a lifestyle will be reading anything on this blog site, but if by chance you are, please consider your eternal destiny beyond the pleasures of this mortal existence.
Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for on…

UFO Sighting Spooks Colorado Town

Image
We believe the Church, (Bride of Christ), will be removed from the scene, (1 Corinthians 15:52), prior to the terrible Day of the Lord....the Wrath of God Almighty on this planet.  We are told that as Christians we are not appointed to face the wrath of God, (1 Thessalonians 5:9), and that we will be kept from the hour of trial that will come upon the whole earth, (Revelation 3:10). 

So how will the world explain the sudden and mysterious disappearance of millions of people from the face of the earth?  Satan has been working on that for several decades now; the UFO phenomenon.  We have many recent Hollywood movies whose main theme is Aliens and visitors from the far reaches of the galaxy, and we also have countless stories of UFO sighting and Alien abductions.  It will be easy for people to believe the explanations, especially if a boat load of Alien craft show up over our cities at some point in the future.  This we believe will be the big lie, the great deception that we are warned…

Portugal Latest Stop on Euro’s Well-Traveled Path to Failure

The European Union in it's present form is likely to change in the months and years to come.  We have expressed our opinion in previous blog entries that the current economic mess that is the European Union will likely collapse under its own massive sovereign debt burden.  From this collapse will arise a much stronger EuropeanSuperState, with a far more centralized financial and governmental structure;  The basis for what will then become a global entity, just as bible prophecy warns about. 
We should not be surprised to read articles that tell us that the Euro is on borrowed time and that the European financial system is on the verge of collapse.


“He gave me this explanation: ‘The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it. The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier on…

As Austerity Bites, the Mood in Europe Turns Ugly

The middle-east is not the only region in the throws of civil unrest. Parts of Europe are as well. Greece has already gone through several rounds of protests and unrest.  Now England has had its own brush with anarchist’s stirring up trouble.  Some 500,000 marchers protested the recent cuts that the new government of Great Britain has instituted.  A small faction within those marchers decided to take the protests to another level.

As the sovereign debt crises in the European Union continues to spiral out of control and governments are forced into tough austerity measures, we should expect to see far more civil unrest of the violent nature in Europe.  Yet more evidence of Jesus Christ’s warnings.
“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 21:9-10 NIV From the news articles: There is little doubt that pressure i…

The Middle East Crisis Has Just Begun

Yet more evidence that we are in the period of time that Jesus Christ spoke off.  Just look at all these headlines.  Yemen, Syria, Jordan and Libya all in upheaval, and that's just today’s headlines.  We all know of recent and on going events in Iraq, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt and Bahrain.

“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 21:9-10 NIV From the main news article: Despite the military drama unfolding in Libya, the Middle East is only beginning to unravel. American policy-makers have been spoiled by events in Tunisia and Egypt, both of which boast relatively sturdy institutions, civil society associations and middle classes, as well as being age-old clusters of civilization where states of one form or another have existed since antiquity. Darker terrain awaits us elsewhere in the region, where states w…

European countries want UN, not U.S., to advance Mideast peace talks

Bible prophecy tells us that the event that will begin the clock on the seven year Tribulation period, (of which the last half is know as the Great Tribulation), will be the signing of a covenant of peace between Israel and the world.  This agreement is perhaps the most important yet to be fulfilled prophetic event on the horizon.  This agreement will not only start the seven year Tribulation period, but will also out the identity of the Antichrist. 

We know from prophecy that this individual will have a tie in with the peoples of the old Roman Empire.  Most prophecy experts concluded that the future Antichrist will rise out of the current European Union which is the restored western leg of the old Roman Empire.

It's very interesting that several European nations are now pressing for representatives of the European Union to be the ones to draw up and finalize any settlements between the Palestinians and Israel.  Will this also be the case when the seven year covenant is signed …

Toward the Rise of an Islamic Caliphate?

Good articles.  Pretty much says what we on this blog have been warning will happen.  The emergence of a very anti-Western, anti-Israel Islamic Caliphate in the Muslim nations of the middle-east and North Africa, all convinced that their Messiah, the Mahdi will lead the world to an Islamic utopia.

Daniel 11:40 indicates a future King of the South will spearhead a military drive towards Israel and the Holy land during the latter days, and Isaiah 19 indicates that Egypt, (and perhaps the other nations of this Caliphate), will come under the rule of a fierce King.
I will hand the Egyptians over to the power of a cruel master, and a fierce king will rule over them,” declares the Lord, the LORD Almighty. Isaiah 19:4 NIV
From the news article: As the Arab world convulses, much of the American discussion is focused on whom we should help, whom we should help topple, how much it will cost, how will it affect our already-taxed military personnel, and whether our leaders in Washington have any k…

Worst Texas Drought in 44 Years Damaging Wheat Crop

The year 2010 was not good for the breadbaskets of the world.  Drought, forest fires and floods greatly effected grain production in North America, Russia and Australia.  The year 2011 doesn't seem to be shaping up to be too much better as well.  The worst Texas drought in 44 years has lead to conditions that rate half the wheat fields as poor to very poor.

Add in projected summer oil prices of $140-$150 per barrel and that would send additional shock waves through the worlds food production industries.  Food prices would become expensive in the more affluent western world, and outright exorbitant in the third world, leading to further civil unrest and famines.

Jesus Christ told us that this would be one of the major signs of the end times, just prior to his return to earth:

Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. Matthew 24:7 NIV

Gaza militants fire rockets deep into Israel

Israel and the Palestinians are tossing bombs back and forth.  Aren't these two combatants supposed to be negotiating a peace treaty?  With a coming deadline of this September for some movement on a negotiated settlement, and thus far not even close, the prospects of the current hostilities escalating is of great concern.  The world is ready to declare a brand new Palestinian state by this fall, but Israel fearing for its own security, may have other ideas.  All of this could be the trigger to a coming war.  Perhaps the battle outlined in Psalm 83, Isaiah 17 and Obadiah.


From the news articles:
Palestinian militants in Gaza fired a new wave of rockets that landed deep inside Israel Thursday, defying Israeli retaliatory attacks and threats. Police said Gaza militants fired 10 rockets and mortars toward Israel Thursday, including two rockets that exploded north of the city of Ashdod, a main Mediterranean port city about 20 miles (30 kilometres) north of Gaza. _________________________…

Drug-Resistant ‘Super Bug’ Hits LA County Hospitals, Nursing Homes

Bible prophecy informs us that many people will unfortunately perish during the dark days of the coming Tribulation period.  The first 4 seals of Revelation 6 indicate that in quick succession, wars will break out leading to food shortages and famines, with disease and pestilence finishing off many millions of people.

This news article, while short, is quite disconcerting.  One particular part of the article notes that there has been a complete collapse in the development of new antibiotics in the last decade.  Consider how this may effect future populations that would be under great distress because of famines, plagues and disease.  There may be little or no means of protecting these populations from the effects of the diseases due to a serious lack of new antibiotics. 


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. …

Islamist Group Is Rising Force in a New Egypt

The mainstream media certainly didn't see this coming, or perhaps they did but completely ignored it.  However the rest of us warned it would be likely that the uprising in the middle-east would lead to more radical forms of Islamic governance in those effected Muslim countries.
Daniel 11:40 indicates an approaching time when a coalition of southern Arab Muslim nations would come together at the end of days to participate in wars based in the Holy land.Are we now seeing the trend towards this prophetic fulfillment?


At the time of the end the king of the South will engage him in battle, and the king of the North will storm out against him with chariots and cavalry and a great fleet of ships. He will invade many countries and sweep through them like a flood. He will also invade the BeautifulLand. Many countries will fall, but Edom, Moab and the leaders of Ammon will be delivered from his hand. Daniel 11:40-41 NIV

Stakelbeck on Terror: Jihad on Campus

From the article: On this week's edition of Stakelbeck on Terror, CBN News takes a look at one of the largest Islamic organizations in America. Several leaders of the Muslim Students Association have been convicted for terrorism, which is why some experts call the group a "gateway to jihad." CBN News also spoke with a former U.S. Army counter-insurgency expert who believes Hezbollah is a bigger threat to America than al Qaeda.

Pastor loses job after questioning hell's existence

Image
We will state for the record that we believe in the existence of a place called Hell, and that this place is the ultimate destination of those people at the age of accountability who have lived their lives outside a restored relationship with the Almighty God of the bible.  The only way to restoration is through the atoning blood of Christ Jesus.
With that said, we have no idea what is in store for those souls that end up in such a horrible place, nor do we wish upon anyone to end up there.  But we do know many will, even those that seem to have lived an exemplary life on planet earth.  For it is not our deeds or good works that restore us to God, but by the acceptance only of the free gift of salvation offered to us by Jesus Christ. 
For those like Rob Bell that teach another gospel about this place called hell, they will have to answer to God as to why they watered down this very important part of our present paradigm.  Even Jesus taught of hell, and it's not a pretty picture. …

Religious Trojan horse: The dangers of the communitarian church growth movement

We highly recommend that you watch this 19 minute video from Brannon Howse of World View Weekend.  In the video, he explains how compromise and transformation through change agents is destroying the traditional church.  Such church leaders as Rick Warren, Bill Hybels, Rob Bell, Brian McLaren, Jim Wallis and the like are all into transforming Christianity.  Into what is the question.  We fear it will become another gospel entirely.  A falling away from biblical Christianity.  Truly a sign of the end.

For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough. 2 Corinthians 11:4 NIV
I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel, which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to p…

US monitor says two 7-magnitude earthquakes strikes northeastern Myanmar

The world continues to shake with powerful earthquakes.  In days past, earthquakes in the magnitude of 7.0 or greater would be quite news worthy. Now they pale in comparison to the temblors we have seen since December of 2004. From that date on we have seen three of the largest earthquakes since 1900:  9.1 - Sumatra in 2004,  9.0 - Japan in 2011,  8.8 - Chile in 2010.  Are earthquakes increasing?  Debatable perhaps, but we sure seem to be having more of the great ones.
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 news articles: Two strong earthquakes struck northeastern Myanmar less than a minute apart Thursday night. They could be felt as far away as Bangkok, but a tsunami was not generated. The first 7.0-magnitude quake was just six miles (10 kilometres) deep, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It was followed by another of the same strength but far deeper: 140 miles (230 kilo…

The Secret Plan For a New Global Currency

If you aren't convinced yet that there is a cadre of elites behind the scenes feverishly working towards the establishment of a one world global economic system and global currency, then read these two articles. Billionaire George Soros is quite front and centre with his desired plans, (some would say that the plans for a restructuring of the global economy are hidden in plain view).  He is bringing together 200 world leaders from academia, business and government to talk about and repeat the same process that established the World Bank and International Monetary Fund back in the 1940's.  This little meeting of Soros is slated for early April, (just days away).
And just what might these elites attempt to set up?  A global central bank with the power to issue a global world currency.  The idea of a global central bank has already been discussed by the Group of 20 countries in recent meetings, and the idea of a global currency has been floated by none other than the IMF.
The bi…
