The Drug Metyrapone to Erase Bad Memories?

Prophecy Sign:  Unabashed and increasing use of narcotics and pharmaceuticals during the last days
An allusion is made to drug use in the book of Revelation.  The particular verse seems to indicate that many people of the Tribulation period will become so hardened of heart and addicted to their drug use, that they will refuse to repent...even after enduring some of the awful events of the Tribulation period.
The passage in question, (Revelation 9:21), tells us that people will not repent of their sorceries.  The original Greek word used is Pharmakia, which is the root word for Pharmaceuticals, or drugs.

These drugs may not only be the illicit, illegal types, but perhaps the mind and emotion altering prescribed ones as well.  We have two articles today, one that indicate that it is possible to mass medicate entire populations of people with mood altering Lithium added to public drinking water, and the other article which reports that a new drug can remove bad memories.  Can anyone else…

With A Single Tap, Your Phone Will Be Your Wallet

Prophecy Sign:  The introduction of a Marked based system that will control who may buy or sell.
We aren't told exactly how it will work, but we are warned in bible prophecy that a time will come when people will be controlled by their ability to buy or sell, (the Mark of the Beast).  Now this mark could be something as simple as a body mark on the hand or forehead, or it could be something a little more sophisticated and inventive.

Such is the ways of our modern technology which is quickly making it very easy to conduct financial transactions without the requirement of cash or credit cards.  Contact-less payment methods are springing up all over the place and could easily be the prelude to something more sinister and permanent that would be affixed to the hand or forehead.  It's especially disconcerting to know that 60% of young people have absolutely no problem with such payment methods, (a preconditioning to the Mark of the Beast?)

He also forced everyone, small and great, r…

Millions face food poverty as northern Europe is hit by worst drought in 35 years

Prophecy Sign:  A food crisis as we near the time of the end, resulting in famines and inflated food costs.
Jesus Christ gave warning that there would be famines throughout the world at the time of the end, and the Apostle John wrote in the book of Revelation that food would become extremely expensive during the Tribulation period.  The past year we have seen countless articles warning of pending food shortages, with resulting food price increases and civil unrest.

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
From the article: Third World nations are braced for riots as Europe's heat wave creates a rise in food prices and drives millions deeper into poverty. "We are in a situation of crisis and of crisis management," said Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, the French Ecology Minister. Meteorologists say that Northern Europe has had 50 per cent l…

Pope Speaks of Mary as Mother of the Risen One

Prophecy Sign:  The creation of a global religious system which will work alongside the Antichrist during the Tribulation

Bible prophecy tells us that during the reign of the Antichrist, (who will oversee a global financial/economic/political system), a equally powerful global religious system will work alongside the Antichrist, (under the lead of the False Prophet), to implement the New World Order agenda, (the first 3 1/2 years of the Tribulation).

This man-made attempt at establishing a utopian society will ensnare millions of people who will unfortunately gladly accept the Mark of the Antichrist to participate in this new order.

Many prophecy observers anticipate that it will be the Church of Rome that will be the basis of this new global religious system.  Rome has for many years been working on the ecumenical plans of reuniting all the Christian churches under the wing of the Catholic Church.  In addition to working with the other major religions of the world in attempting to br…

Muslim Brotherhood Aims for Islamic Egyptian State

Prophecy Sign:  Egypt to become more radicalized and to turn on Israel at the end-times.
Yet more evidence that Egypt is quickly turning away from the 30 years of peace that it has had with Israel, and is becoming just another hate filled enemy of Israel.  This hatred will cause Egypt to become involved in yet another war with Israel, (what many refer to as the Psalm 83 war), which may be the cause of great devastation to occur in the land of Egypt, (Ezekiel 29).

And the land of Egypt shall be desolate and waste; and they shall know that I am the LORD: because he hath said, The river is mine, and I have made it. Behold, therefore I am against thee, and against thy rivers, and I will make the land of Egypt utterly waste and desolate, from the tower of Syene even unto the border of Ethiopia. No foot of man shall pass through it, nor foot of beast shall pass through it, neither shall it be inhabited forty years. Ezekiel 29:9-11 NIV
From the articles: The Muslim Brotherhood will impose Isla…

Scottish municipality bans Israeli books

Prophecy Sign:  An increasing hatred towards the Jewish State and its people in the last days.
Jesus Christ gave warning to Jewish people living in a future age that a time would come when the Jews living in the Holy Land would literally have to flee their homes and nation during the last days.  (This to occur half way through the Tribulation – Matthew 24:15-18, Revelation 12:6).

We are also told in the book of Revelation that the City of Jerusalem would be trampled upon by the Gentiles for 42 months, (again, the last half of the Tribulation – Revelation 11:2 ).

These two events tells us that as we approach the last days, they hatred of both the Jewish people and the nation of Israel would intensify.  To the point that every nation on earth will be judged for their treatment of God's own people, the Jewish nation.  Given the terrible days of World War 2 when 6 million Jews were murdered, it's hard to comprehend that it could get much worse.  Unfortunately, it will as the Anti…

U.S. at Risk of Default

Prophecy Sign:  The collapse of the economies of the world, to be replaced by the financial system of the Antichrist

The dominoes are lined up and are ready to fall.  The biggest domino of them all will be the fall of the American economy.  With a huge and growing debt level, a stagnant economy, and the possibility of debt default, things are not looking so good in America.  And with an ailing European Union and the Japanese with the highest GDP to debt ratios in the world, the global financial system is now sitting on the very edge of collapse.  Just what event will push it over the edge remains to be seen.

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 who sold these things and gained their wealth from her will …

China drought ignites global grain supply concerns

Prophecy Sign:  A developing food crisis that will impact the world during the time of the Tribulation

Bible prophecy warns that during the time of the Tribulation, food would become very costly.  Probably due to both food shortages and economic pressures such as hyper-inflation.  More and more we are reading news articles like these that indicate a growing food crisis, and growing food shortages across the globe.
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 article: A prolonged drought in China could hit grains output in key growing regions, further squeezing global supplies and putting upward pressure on prices, but …

Jet delay adds to China threat

Prophecy Sign:  The emergence of China, (and other Asian nations), as both economic and military powers at the end-times.
Bible prophecy tells us that during the Tribulation, a power from the East, (Kings of the East), will march on the Holy Land with an army of some 200 million soldiers.  Presently the nations of China and India have a combined population of some 2.5 billion people, and could quite conceivably muster up enough able bodied men to field and this army of 200 million.
There have been many articles in recent weeks and months that show the growing super power status that is the nation of China.  To the point where China will surpass America as the biggest economy on the planet in a few years, and her military build-up is causing great concern for American officials.
The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East. Revelation 16:12 NIV

It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Rel…

Egyptian activists 'to form Nazi party', newspaper reports

Prophecy Sign:  Egypt to undergo radical change
The book of Isaiah, (chapter 19), foretold of a coming time when Egypt would see civil unrest which would ultimately lead to a "Fierce Leader" rising to power to rule the nation of Egypt.  Egypt is also foretold in both the book of Psalms, (chapter 83), and Ezekiel, (chapter 29), to become involved in a war with Israel and to suffer much devastation, (perhaps by that of a nuclear weapon).
Recent news articles indicate that Egypt is slowly coming under the grips of radical Islam, with the hatred of Israel becoming ever more evident.
“I will stir up Egyptian against Egyptian— brother will fight against brother, neighbour against neighbour, city against city, kingdom against kingdom.” Isaiah 19:2 NIV

“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 articles:

A group of Egyptian political activists have announced plans …

Among Israeli Jews, 20,000 embrace Christ

Prophecy Sign:  The Jewish people will at the end-times, finally acknowledge as a Nation, their Messiah, Jesus Christ.
It's awesome to read just how many Israeli Jews have come to accept Jesus Christ, (Yeshua), as their Messiah.  From as few as 12 in 1948 to 20,000 today.
We are told in Bible prophecy that a remnant of Jews will be protected during the Tribulation period, and that these people will once and for all, recognize Jesus Christ for who he is;  Their Messiah.
I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in, and in this way all Israel will be saved. As it is written: “The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob. Romans 11:25-26 NIV

And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and the…

Russia ready to recognize Palestine

Prophecy Sign:  Russia, (the land of Magog), to become a power once again, and involved in end-times wars with Israel.
Russia is fast becoming an influential power in middle-eastern affairs.  After losing much of her power and status after the collapse of Communism, the Russian Bear is back and re-establishing her former alliances in the Middle-East.  Russia has signed economic treaties and has been providing armaments to the likes of Iran, Syria, Turkey and Libya in recent months and years.  So it's not surprising to read that Russia will be one of the first nations to recognize any United Nations unilateral declaration of statehood for the Palestinians.
Bible prophecy tells us that Russia will in the near future become part of an alliance of nations that come against Israel in an end-times battle.

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 Sovere…

Rick Warren Says Those Who Focus on Bible Prophecy “Not fit for the kingdom of God”

Prophecy Sign:  A falling away from Biblical Christianity, and a turning towards teachings that tickle the ears

Pastor Rick Warren may not be going down the same road as the likes of Rob Bell, Brian McLaren and the like in their questioning and rejection of Biblical Christianity.  However, that's not to say his apparent distain for followers and students of Bible prophecy, and Warren’s Social Gospel message is exactly the precepts of Biblical Christianity either.

These so called "Men of God", need to get back into their Bibles to understand what's coming down the pipe in the very near future.  We are not heading towards some sort of grand utopian society worthy of the return of Jesus Christ, but rather we are quickly descending into a far more evil and self centred world that is more and more rejecting the teachings of Jesus Christ.  In fact Jesus asked a very interesting question with regards to his return to this world:

And will not God bring about justice for his c…

Evangelicals: Rob Bell Preaching 'False Gospel'

Prophecy Sign:  A falling away from Biblical Christianity, and a turning towards teachings that tickle the ears

Bible prophecy tells us that at the time of the end, we would see true Biblical Christianity fall by the wayside as people of faith begin to seek out teachings that would be pleasant to their ears.  Typical of this movement is such Evangelical leaders such as Rob Bell who preach a false gospel of there being no literal Hell in which the lost will someday find themselves.  It's so much easier on the ears to be told that Hell is a concept we have simply gotten wrong and in fact no-one will be sent to a terrible Hell by an all loving God.  However, that would be a totally false teaching according to what even Jesus Christ said about Hell:

We don't wish to preach a "hell-fire and brimstone" message here, but we do ask any of you that read this blog entry to consider your relationship with God Almighty in light of what Christ warns is waiting for those that refu…

Internet rules at center of 'e-G8' forum in Paris

Prophecy Sign:  The establishment of a global "Police State" that will be controlled by the Antichrist

Little things.  They may not seem like much at first glance, but when all added together the picture starts to become very clear.  For instance, the following articles;  We have warned in many previous blog entries, and will continue to sound the alarm about the continued build-up towards a police state environment.  When you read articles that indicate governments of the world want to "regulate" the internet, even if that means curbing internet freedom, and then another article that indicates a government agency is expected to mandate "black boxes" for all new vehicles that will allow for the tracking and recording of all movements of the vehicle, you realize that we are slowly being corralled by a growing police state.

During the Tribulation, the Antichrist will put to death many millions of people who refuse to take his mark.  Like the Nazi's of t…

Netanyahu's defiance on deal is 'declaration of war'

Prophecy Sign:  The Psalm 83 War

As September approaches, (the month in which the Palestinians will go to the U.N. for a unilateral declaration of Statehood), the rhetoric picks up. 

Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has said no way to a splitting of Jerusalem, or a return to the pre-1967 borders.  The Palestinians leadership has of course denounced this announcement as a "declaration of war against the Palestinians".  Pretty strong words. In addition, the Palestinians have re-iterated their goal of achieving the new state of Palestine through a declaration from the United Nations.  Of course this would be done without any agreement in place with Israel, so how any border arrangements would be put in place and enforced is anybodies guess.

This of course is all leading to the war that is prophesied in Psalm 83.  The rhetoric, as we said before, is gaining momentum with each passing day.  The hatred that exists towards Israel and the Jews in the Muslim Arab mindset …

Netanyahu: Israel 'to be generous' in Palestine deal

Israel has no intention to draw back to the indefensible pre-1967 borders in order to reach any sort of peace treaty.  To do so would be suicide.  We thank God that at least the leadership here in Canada have the sense to see the reasons why as well. 

For a very good and quick lesson in just why Israel can't retreat to these indefensible borders, just watch the last video we have included in this blog entry. It’s only just over 5 minutes long.

From the articles: Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has told the US Congress Israel would be generous with the size of a future Palestinian state but that the border could not rest at pre-1967 lines. But he said he was "willing to make painful compromises" to achieve peace. A Palestinian official said the Israeli PM had added more obstacles to a deal. On Friday, Mr Netanyahu rejected US President Barack Obama's call for a peace deal with the Palestinians based on pre-1967 borders, plus land swaps. _______________________________  Pr…

Big Hurricane Season Predicted—Has U.S. Run Out of Luck?

Prophecy Sign:  The judgement of God upon nations at the end of time.

While we are not at the end of days just yet, and not at that point when God will gather all the nations to the Valley of Jehoshaphat to be judged, (Joel 3), we most certainly must be getting close.

Is it any coincidence that as soon as President Barack Obama stood on stage and announced that Israel must pull back to the pre-1967 borders, and enormous tornado struck America's heartland with devastating results?  Most people might say coincidence.  We suggest, play it safe and don't mess with Gods requirements, or do so at your own peril.  With all the recent floods, droughts, tornados and coming hurricanes, we suggest the American leadership read up on just what Gods requirements with regards to Israel are:

I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you." Genesis 12:3 NIV

Savage: Bible shows what's next for Israel

Prophecy Sign:  The build-up to the Gog/Magog war foretold in the book of Ezekiel

With so much happening in the middle-east these days, many commentators and media are taking notice of the events with respect to the prophesied battle foretold in the book of Ezekiel.  This soon to be fulfilled war pitting the enemies of Israel against the Jewish state will see an army featuring an alliance of nations, (Turkey - BethTogarmah, Iran - Persia, Lybia - Put, Sudan/Ethiopia - Cush, as well as Russia, or parts thereof - Magog), coming against Israel. 

From the articles: When President Obama called yesterday for Israel to pull back to the borders that existed before the 1967 Six-Day War – lines Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called militarily "indefensible" – top-rated nationally syndicated radio host Michael Savage turned to the Bible for a glimpse of the Middle East's future. "Ezekiel is predictive of what's going to happen," Savage said as he read from the Hebr…

Thousands face volcanic ash cloud flight cancellations

Prophecy Sign:  Earthquakes and Volcanoes in diverse places.

While Jesus didn't specifically mention Volcanoes in his description of end-times events to his disciples, one could surmise that if earthquakes would be occurring all over the world at the end of time, the other seismic event, volcanoes, would be too.

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 passengers have had their flights cancelled because of drifting ash from an Icelandic volcano. About 500 flights were cancelled in Europe on Tuesday, air traffic management body Eurocontrol said. Flights from some airports in Scotland and northern England would be affected until 0100 BST on Wednesday, air traffic services company Nats said. But the transport secretary said there should not be significant disruption for UK airports after Tuesday night. ____________________________________  Britain said flights c…

Israeli Oil Could Have a Bigger Impact Than Gas

Prophecy Sign:  The discovery of riches in Israel that would make it a wealthy nation

There are several scripture references that seem to prophecy that Israel would come into much wealth at the end-times due to riches discovered in the hidden places.  The result of these new found riches may become the carrot that causes the armies of the Gog/Magog battle, (Ezekiel 38/39), to attempt to invade Israel and take her wealth.

I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name. Isaiah 45:3 NIV
Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and all her villages will say to you, “Have you come to plunder? Have you gathered your hordes to loot, to carry off silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods and to seize much plunder?” Ezekiel 38:13 NIV
From the articles:
Although there is a low probability of finding sizable quantities of oil in Israeli waters, its discovery could have a bigger impact…

How the euro crisis end game might look

Prophecy Sign:  The rise of the Revived Roman Empire, (EuropeanSuperstate), at the time of the end. 

Most bible prophecy experts conclude that a revived Roman empire will be established in Western Europe from which the Antichrist will arise.  This is the vision of both Daniel, (Daniel 7) and the Apostle John, (Revelation 17), that of the revived empire. This empire will be the prelude to the 10 kingdoms that will be established during the reign of the Antichrist, and will implement the financial world order of the Antichrist.

It's interesting to see the current events in the Europe Union as the debt crisis is forcing the European nations closer together in unified financial and banking systems, to the point of giving up much of their sovereignty in these areas.  This will bring about a European Super state which will make it much easier for a world leader to rise up to take control of not only the economy of the Revived Roman Empire, but that of the global economy as well.

The ten…

US Worse Off Financially Than Euro Nations

Prophecy Sign:  A coming global economic collapse

Europe in a debt crisis.  Japan with a debt to GDP ratio of over 200%.  America with a debt so big it can be measured in thousands of miles when measured with stacks of bills. How is all this sustainable?  It's not and will, in the very near future, collapse.  When it does, it will allow for the new financial and economic world order of the Antichrist to be established.

Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon 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
From the articles: The US is spending $4 billion a day more than it is taking in, putting the country on an unsustainable fiscal path perpetuated by both Democrats and Republicans, according to David Walker, head of the Comeback America Initiative. In fact, acc…

‘Obama Put a Gun to Israel’s Head’

Prophecy Sign:  Israel to be abandoned by all the nations of the world.

There is a coming time when Israel and Jerusalem will be trodden down by the Gentiles, (non-Jews), for a period of 42 months.  During this time, the Jewish people will literally be chased out of Israel, and will be mercilessly persecuted.  How will this happen when currently there still are nations that consider themselves supporters and defenders of the Jewish State, (Canada, America, Britain and many of the other Western World nations)? 

Likely, when the Rapture of the Church occurs, the strong support that Israel currently has will be removed from these nations, leaving behind a whole lot of ambivalence or downright hatred of Israel in these nations.  Case in point, the seeming disregard for Israel’s security that the current U.S. President has for Israel, and the very pro-Palestinian support among the left-wing through-out the world.  The video we include here has one of those left-wing Obama advisors suggest…
