Fatah and Hamas agree to historic Palestinian reconciliation deal

Prophecy Sign:  The neighbouring Arab states and people groups surrounding Israel will align together.

The series of articles we have linked to for this blog entry have a whole lot of prophetic implications when it comes to future alliances and war with Israel.  It would seem that the two Palestinian groups that rule the West Bank and the Gaza Strip have decided to kiss and make up. This, after a civil war between the two that saw many Palestinians killed.  Seems as well that this little peace treaty was brokered by the new, (and more hostile to Israel), leaders of Egypt.  Then we have the Iranian government who are pleased as punch with this little deal feeling that it will once and for all force out the "ruthless occupiers" from Palestine.  In fact the Palestinians are happy to send the Iranians a new map of the Middle East that shows no Israel but a new nation called Palestine.

Meanwhile Israel has said that in no way will it negotiate a peace treaty with this new reconci…

Church Touts Homosexuality as a Gift, Not a Sin

Prophecy Sign:  Falling away from true Biblical Christianity principals, (Apostasy)

Homosexuality....a gift from God?  We don't know what this church is using as their Bible, but it sure isn't the one we read every night.  While we are to love the sinner and make attempts to persuade them of their sin and need for redemption through Christ, we are not called on to love their sin.  This is truly the downfall of our Laodicean church age that attempts to be all things to all people, (political correctness and all), while having nothing of substance and truth for anyone.

For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 2 Timothy 4:3 NIV
From the article:
Being gay is a gift from God, asserts one church in Ohio. That’s the message that CentralUnitedMethodistChurch is spreading throughout their community via a digital billboard…

Tornadoes devastate South, killing at least 290

Prophecy Sign:  Roaring and tossing of the Seas, (anomalous and dangerous weather patterns?)

Our family is fortunate to live in an area of North America that has very benign weather, (Central British Columbia).  We never ever see tornadoes, hurricanes, vicious winter or summer storms, or prolonged droughts.  In fact, one could say our weather is pretty boring.  However, sometimes we are very thankful to God for that very boring weather when we read of such devastating storms like those that have swept through the Southern U.S.

While many parts of North America are prone to tornadic activity, (even parts of Canada), the storms that have hit this week in the U.S. are being called the largest and most powerful ever to have occurred.  We are praying for all the communities and people thereof, that have been devastated by these tornadoes.  You have our heartfelt prayers.

'Syria, Hezbollah to compete over firing Scud at Tel Aviv'

Prophecy Sign:  The prophetic destinies of both Syria and Russia

We are told that Syria will become involve in a war against Israel, (what else is new).  The likely war that Syria will be part of is the Psalm 83 battle.  Unfortunately for Syria, it will not go well with them, as we are told by the Prophet Isaiah, (Isaiah 17), that Damascus will be destroyed.

A prophecy against Damascus: “See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins. In the evening, sudden terror! Before the morning, they are gone! This is the portion of those who loot us, the lot of those who plunder us. Isaiah 17:1&14 NIV

As for Russia, her allegiance to her long-time and traditional ally, that being Syria, may be one of the proverbial “hooks in the jaw” that the Prophet Ezekiel wrote about in his prophecy of the Gog/Magog war, (Ezekiel 38/39).  We are told by Ezekiel that this alliance of nations, (likely including Russia), which will attempt to invade Israel will be met with destruction…

Food prices set to hit record

Prophecy Sign:  Food shortages and a global food crisis:

While inflating food prices may only cause most people in the Western World to grumble when they open their wallets to pay the grocery bill, many millions of people living in the third world will be driven further into poverty and despair.  This will only further the prospects of revolutions and civil unrest.

The Apostle John writing in the book of Revelation warned that things will only get worse during the time of the Tribulation.  John warned that food would become so exorbitantly expensive that a days wage would be necessary to purchase a days worth of food, (for a family or for a single person, John doesn't tell us).

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 6:6 NIV

From the article:

Global food prices may rise 4.4% to a record by the end of the year…

Summer war in the Middle East?

Prophecy Sign:  War in the middle-east.

We have linked to yet another very good article that summarizes the growing tension and powder-keg that is the middle-east.  The article assesses the various scenarios that could lead to war between Israel and the Arab world.  One of the possible igniters to war is the anticipate September declaration of a new Arab state called Palestine.
We continue to warn of the possible soon fulfillment of what many refer to as the Psalm 83 war.  This war may also be alluded to in the book of Obadiah and in Isaiah 17, (additionally in sections of Ezekiel and Jeremiah).

From the article: This year, the game inventory is extraordinarily rich: among other plots, a great Arab revolution, a (much discussed) great Arab counter-revolution, a growing crisis in the Persian Gulf within the context of worsening Sunni-Shi'ite relations across the Middle East, a Palestinian declaration of independence looming by September if not earlier, and a speculative "war i…

Netanyahu Denies Report He Caved In on Temple Mount

Prophecy Sign:  The negotiation of a seven year treaty of peace between Israel and the "many"

We have said before that we don't believe the current race to set up a new Arab state in the Middle-East called Palestine will be the fulfillment of the seven year peace covenant that the Prophet Daniel wrote about, (Daniel 9:27).  Instead, we have noted many articles from Israeli media which indicate that such a declaration of a new state could lead to another mid-east war.

However, we could be wrong.  With denied reports surfacing that suggest Israel may be ready to agree to most of the Palestinian demands, and President Obama pressuring all parties to agree to a new state based on the pre-1967 borders, perhaps there may be something in the works, and a peace treaty will ensue.

We think not, but in the event the world declares peace at last, you know what the bible says about that:

While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as…

IMF bombshell: Age of America nears end

Prophecy Sign: The demise of American influence in world affairs, and the rise of a New World global economic/financial order.

America, (and the rest of the Western world for that matter), is not mentioned in bible prophecy.  We are told of the King of the South, the King of the North, the Kings of the East, and many of the current middle-eastern and North Africa Muslim nations, all in end-time prophecy.  But the only passage that may have something to do with the Western world in bible prophecy is that of Ezekiel 38:13 which mentions a grouping called Tarshish and the "young lions thereof".  Some prophecy buffs suggest this passage refers to Great Britain and her offspring, (Canada, America, Australia, etc).

So why is the West, and in particular, America not in prophecy?  Could it be that America and the West will have lost much of its power and influence due to an economic collapse?  And additionally, the Rapture of the Church will greatly impact America and the West, as ma…

Sadovnikov: Russia will not stop cooperating with Iran

Prophecy Sign:  Russia and Iran aligning together with several other nations in the Gog/Magog war prophesied by Ezekiel.

"Russia will never stop cooperating with Iran"  Someday in the not to distant future, those words will come back to haunt the Russian nation.  The Prophet Ezekiel foretold of a coming war which would see a leader from the northern most parts, (Gog of the land of Magog), align himself with Persia and several other nations in yet another invasion attempt of the nation of Israel.  Most bible prophecy observers consider Russia to be the nation that is referred to as Magog, and that Persia is present day Iran.

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, …

Most Egyptians favor annulling peace with Israel

Prophecy Sign:  The formulation of alliances that will ultimately come against Israel in war

It's not terribly surprising that a majority of Egyptians want to toss out the peace treaty the Egyptians have with Israel.  Since the demise of the Mubarak regime, those geo-political observers with any smarts at all could see the power vacuum in Egypt being filled by the Islamic Muslim Brotherhood;  A group with a serious hate-on for the Israel and the Jewish people.

Egypt will likely not be the only nation to wind up in the hands of more radical forms of Islamic rule.  Will we eventually see Syria, Libya, Bahrain, Yemen and others fall as Egypt did?  Iran, and its President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would more than love to see this happen.  In fact, the Iranian leadership feels that it is prophesied to happen.  How does all this affect the nation of Israel?  Bible prophecy foretells of a future battle featuring the nations that immediately border Israel coming together in an alliance in orde…

60 Churches Burned in Post-Election Nigeria Violence

Prophecy Sign:  Christian persecution

Christian persecution is not necessarily a specific sign of the end-times.  In fact Christians have been persecuted since the start of the Church nearly 2,000 years ago.  What is a disturbing trend is the rise of Christian persecution in Muslim nations of the world.  From Pakistan, to Nigeria and all points in between.  With all the recent unrest and revolutions in the Middle-East, Christians living in these nations will be in even further peril and at risk of martyrdom.  Please pray for those Christians living under the threat of persecution in the Muslim nations of the world.

All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. Matthew 10:22 NIV
From the article: More than 60 churches were burned and thousands of Christian-owned homes destroyed in Nigeria’s predominantly Muslim north after the recent election of incumbent Christian president Goodluck Jonathan, according to the Christian persecution watchdog group …

THIRD PALESTINIAN INTIFADA: All Arabs to March on Israel on May 15th

Prophecy Sign:  Dividing the land which God gave Israel as an eternal inheritance.

There is a major event to occur this May that many of you may not be aware of.  Arabs, (as well as many other useful idiots), will be attempting to form a million person march in which the mass of humanity will advance towards Israel in an attempt to bring about a new Arab state called Palestine.

We already know of the Quartet's (America, Russia, UN, EU) plans to bring about either a negotiated new Arab state by September of the year, or by unilateral declaration by the United Nations General Assembly. This "Third Intifada" as it is called is simply more pressure on the Jewish state to agree to the Palestinian demands. Whether these efforts will bring about peace or another Middle-East war remains to be seen.

From the website: Sunday, May 15th
To commemorate the Palestinian exodus day 1948 ( Nakba) when well over 750,000 Palestinians were forcibly expelled out of their home land by Israel, s…

Stakelbeck on Terror: Middle East on Fire

Palestinians counting on Obama for state

Prophecy Sign:  Dividing the land, given by God as an eternal inheritance to the Jewish people

September approaches, and the Quartet of America, Russia, the United Nations and the European Union, continue to push hard to see a further division of Jerusalem and the Land of Israel. 

I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land. Joel 3:2 NIV
From the articles: The Palestinians are signaling they are still planning to go ahead with efforts to declare an independent state with the backing of the United Nations. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said during a visit in Tunisia that the Palestinian Authority is ready to establish a state. "We are counting on the words of US President Barack Obama who said his vision is to see a Palestinian state this coming September according to a deadline set by t…

Many Born-Again Christians Hold Universalist Views, Barna Finds

Prophecy Sign:  Growing deception and erroneous teachings in the Church during the last days

The Pope decries the fact that Western nations are rejecting the Christianity of their heritage. At the same time we read that more and more born-again Christians are accepting the teaching of universalism.  The teaching that a persons religion matters not in their acceptance by God and admission into the heavenly realms.  Then we also read that many ChristianUniversities and Colleges are seeing more and more Gays and Lesbians coming out of the so called closets in these institutions, demanding the right to proclaim who they are.

Thanks to such influential Evangelicals as Brian McLaren, Rob Bell, Joel Osteen, and others, true biblical Christianity is becoming every more watered down due to not wanting to offend anyone.  The words of Paul to Timothy were never more relevant than they are now:

For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desir…

Disclosure 101

Prophecy Sign:  A powerful delusion to be sent by God, which the world will gladly believe.

Someday, the Bride of Christ, (the Church), is going to be carried away to a brand new home by the Groom, (Jesus Christ).  This event which we refer to as the Rapture of the Church, will likely cause great panic upon the Earth as people search for answers to the sudden and mysterious disappearance of many millions of citizens.  The World will have an immediate answer. An answer which has been in the formulation stages for several decades now, and is becoming every more mainstream and excepted as fact;  That of E.T. and UFO's.  The belief among many that we are the seed of some long distant past visitation of Aliens is becoming a very mainstream concept, (see video below). 

For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie. 2 Thessalonians 2:11 NIV

Hijacking Revolution? Muslim Brotherhood wants power in Egypt

Prophecy Sign:  Egypt to transform into a major enemy of Israel

Egypt’s destiny does not look good in bible prophecy.  The Prophet Isaiah foresaw an Egypt that would undergo a revolution and see the rise to power of what Isaiah referred to as a "fierce leader", (Isaiah 19).  The Prophet Ezekiel foresaw an Egypt that would become a desolate wasteland for a period of 40 years, (Ezekiel 29).  But the good news, Egypt will come to know that Almighty God is the sovereign Lord.

It will be the lowliest of kingdoms and will never again exalt itself above the other nations. I will make it so weak that it will never again rule over the nations. Egypt will no longer be a source of confidence for the people of Israel but will be a reminder of their sin in turning to her for help. Then they will know that I am the Sovereign LORD. Ezekiel 29:15-16 NIV

The next chapter in Egypt's handbook on democracy will see free elections held in September. Rather than a path towards …

You Always Have a Mother - John Paul II on Love for Mary

Prophecy Sign:  A departure from the teaching of true Biblical Christianity.  Turning towards another Gospel.
The poor Catholics.  Many are such good people with earnest desires to help others, (others only show up to mass because they're obligated to do so on the days of obligation).  However the Catholic faith has been so co-opted by heretical teachings over the last hundreds of years that it has essentially become another gospel.  Take for example the teaching that Mary the mother of Christ is to be your comforter and teacher, (see below).  Wrong!!  And we can't say that loud enough.  The comforter that Jesus sent is none other than the Holy Spirit.  And no, Jesus Christ would not have us showering blessings on the "Blessed Mother Mary", or any other mortal human being for that matter.  The only one to be showered with blessings and to be worshiped is that of God the Father and God in the flesh, Jesus Christ.
Please pray for your Catholic brothers and sisters.  Th…

Quartet may recognize Palestinian state

Prophecy Sign:  Movements towards a false peace treaty between Israel and the World, (which will be broken 3 1/2 years into), and a further dividing of the land.
We keep warning; September of this year will be a pivotal month in terms of bible prophecy.  The world, especially the so called Quartet of America, Russia, the E.U. and U.N., continues to push for a peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians, but barring that, are prepared to recognize a new Palestinian state along the pre-1967 borders, (so says the article below).  Those borders would essentially make Israel indefensible and would further divide the land given by God to his people, the Jewish nation.  Considering the blind hatred that the Arab states have towards their Jewish neighbors, an indefensible Israel would be a prime opportunity for an invasion by the Arabs in their desire to wipe Israel off the map permanently, (the modus operandi of Psalm 83).  This is what we believe will happen; A prophetic war rather th…

Gordon Brown calls for reform of global bodies including IMF and UN

Prophecy Sign:  The gradual creation of a global governance system, which will then be controlled by the future "Man of Sin", (Antichrist)
The Prophet Daniel and the Apostle John both recorded in their prophetic books of end-times events, (Daniel and Revelation), the ultimate creation of global political systems, financial systems and religious systems.  These three pillars will allow a future world ruler to subjugate the peoples of the world, and force them to choose between acceptance of him as God, (the Mark of the Beast will be their acceptance), or death, (many will be martyred for their faith in Jesus Christ).
We noted last week of the two events that billionaire George Soros was sponsoring that would seek to completely change the present financial and political structures of the world.  Now former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is calling for the exact same thing in a complete reformation of the IMF and UN into global institutions with a new "ethic" to …

iPhone keeps record of everywhere you go

Prophecy Sign:  A future global Police State., whereby any and all resistors to the future Antichrist can be eliminated.
You may love your new iPhone, but can easily be tracked, and/or your recent whereabouts can also be accessed.  You might as well just plant a bug, (transmitter), on yourself while you go about your daily routine.
From the article: Security researchers have discovered that Apple's iPhone keeps track of where you go – and saves every detail of it to a secret file on the device which is then copied to the owner's computer when the two are synchronized. The file contains the latitude and longitude of the phone's recorded coordinates along with a timestamp, meaning that anyone who stole the phone or the computer could discover details about the owner's movements using a simple program. For some phones, there could be almost a year's worth of data stored, as the recording of data seems to have started with Apple's iOS 4 update to the ph…

World Bank president: 'One shock away from crisis'

Prophecy Sign:  A restructuring of the global economy, (probably due to economic collapse), and gold/silver becoming important commodities in the last days.
In the last days, the global economy will likely collapse due to the immense sovereign debt loads. This collapse will allow the global financial system to be restructured into what we know as the New World Order of the Antichrist.  This system too will collapse, (read Revelation 18), and it will be such a devastating collapse that even gold and silver will have little to no value. 
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
They will throw their silver into the streets, and their gold will be an unclean thing. Their silver and gold will not be able to save them in the d…

Obama moves forward with Internet ID plan

Prophecy Sign:  The growing trend towards a global police state that will enable the future Antichrist to have control over the whole world.

An internet ID.  The perfect way for a future world leader to enforce an internet ban on those that would attempt to use such media formats to warn the world of this evil ruler. 

From the article:

He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. Revelation 13:7 NIV
The Obama administration said today that it's moving ahead with a plan for broad adoption of Internet IDs despite concerns about identity centralization, and hopes to fund pilot projects next year. At an event hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C., administration officials downplayed privacy and civil liberties concerns about their proposal, which they said would be led by the private sector and not be required for Americans who use the Internet. There's "no r…

Radial Islamist groups gaining stranglehold in Egypt

Prophecy Sign:  The transformation of Egypt into a major enemy of Israel, and the eventual rise of a fierce leader to take control of Egypt.

Egypt will eventually fall under the control of what the bible refers to as a "fierce leader".  Egypt will also shake off the peace treaty it has with the nation of Israel, and will become involved in war with the Jewish state.  We expect this war will be the battle prophesied in Psalm 83, which will see an alliance of nations, that border Israel, come against the Jewish state in order to wipe out once and for all, the name of Israel in the middle-east, (don't worry....they loose).  In fact Egypt is prophesied to see much devastation due to her turning against Israel in war, (Isaiah 19 and Ezekiel 29).

I will stir up Egyptian against Egyptian—brother will fight against brother, neighbour against neighbour, city against city, kingdom against kingdom. I will hand the Egyptians over to the power of a cruel master, and a fierce king will …

Fighting the Fungi That Threaten Wheat

Prophecy Sign:  Famines and Pestilence throughout the world at the time of the end.
Another of Jesus dire warnings concerning the events that would be occurring prior to his return to earth would be that of pestilences and famines.  We have seen so many things begin to happen in rapid succession that will ultimately cause great foods shortages and famines.  From the mysterious loss of bees around the world, to climate anomalies, (forest fires, droughts, flooding), to insect infestations, (locust in Australia), to rising oil prices which affect food production, to plant diseases such as this article warns of.  It is absolutely amazing how all these events are happening one right after another.
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 24:7-8 NIV
When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and the…

Will Earthbound Comet Fulfill 2012 Prophecy?

Prophecy Sign:  There will be signs in the Sun, Moon and Stars

Jesus Christ warned that one of the signs of his soon return to earth would be signs in the cosmos, (sun, moon and stars).  We are not quite sure what he meant by this.  However, we do know that there are several biblical passages that indicate that at the time of the end, the moon would turn blood red and the Sun would be blackened, (Isaiah 13:10, Joel 2:31, Matthew 24:29, Mark 13:24, Acts 2:20, Revelation 6:12).  We also know from bible prophecy that large objects will crash to earth, (meteors, asteroids), causing incredible devastation on earth, (Revelation 8:8-11).

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's nearly 300 million miles away and barrelling toward us. The intruder from deep space, called comet Elenin, crosses Earth's orbit on its inbound leg and again on its outbound…
