Are You Ready For a World Governed by Islamic Law?

Prophecy Sign: The rise of a powerful bloc during the last days which bible prophecy labels the King of the South.

The prophet Daniel recorded for us a last days prophecy which would see two powerful coalition blocs of nations collide in battle. The two are known as the King of the North and the King of the South, and are recorded in Daniel 11.

All prophecy experts peg the King of the North as being the Antichrist; Emanating out of either the Western leg of the old Roman Empire, (Europe), or the Eastern leg, (the old Ottoman Empire). (We ourselves believe it will be the now developing EuropeanSuperState).
But what will be the King of the South? We are not alone in believing it will be a Muslim Caliphate comprising much of the Middle-East and North African Muslim nations. Hal Lindsey is one proponent of this theory.

The following videos and the news article make it quite clear that what is currently happening in the middle-east with all the recent uprisings could be leading to the est…

Water wars: 21st century conflicts?

Prophecy Sign: Wars and Drought

End-times bible prophecy is rife with warnings of wars that will be fought throughout the world with millions perishing. We are not told just what will be the catalyst to these conflicts. Perhaps as this article suggestions, the shortage of water may become one of the reasons for nations to rise against nations.

And as this world continues to reject the true living God of this Universe and his son Jesus Christ, judgements will fall upon this world. One of those judgments being the drying up of the water supplies.

You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. Matthew 24:6-7 NIV

I will lay waste the mountains and hills and dry up all their vegetation; I will turn rivers into islands and dry up the pools. Isaiah 42:15 NIV

Global agriculture supply keeps worsening

Prophecy Sign: A worsening food crisis which will only get worse as the worlds enters into the Tribulation period.

The Apostle John, recorded for us in the book of Revelation, a very scary prophecy of a world wide food crisis which would see prices for food becoming so exorbitant that it would take a days wage to buy enough food for a family for only one day. This future event will take place during the Tribulation, but we can see the signs already of this impending crisis. Every week we read more headlines of a looming food crisis, with rising prices, increased demand and major world wide shortages. Just as John wrote:

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 o…

Iran conducting secret ballistic missile tests in addition to public military maneuvers

Prophecy Sign: Persia, (Iran), to become involved in an end-times war against Israel

The prophet Ezekiel, writing several thousand years ago, foretold of a war that would take place during the last days. This war is recorded in chapters 38/39 of the book of Ezekiel and indicates that Persia, (Iran), along with several other nations, would attack Israel. God intervenes on behalf of the Jewish people and helps to destroy this invading army.

Iran is becoming ever more brazen in its goal of acquiring nuclear weapons, with recent reports that the Iranians are mere months away from producing a nuclear weapon, and with these reports that indicate Iran is testing ballistic missiles, capable of carrying a nuclear payload. How much longer Israel can wait before striking Iran and eliminating this threat is anyone’s guess. One thing is clear; we are fast approaching some sort of confrontation. Will this be the prelude to the Gog/Magog war that Ezekiel wrote about?

World economy set to face more frequent shocks

Prophecy Sign: The collapse of the world economy

Yet more signs of a world economy that is becoming ever sicker with each passing day. An economy that many pundits are now saying will, (rather than might), collapse in the very near future, (see video below).

Bible prophecy also foretells that the world economy will collapse, to such a degree that people will literally cast their gold and silver into the streets. Things that we consider of value now, will become worthless when the prophecies of an end of days global economic collapse come to fruition, (read Revelation 18).

They will throw their silver into the streets, and their gold will be treated as a thing unclean. Their silver and gold will not be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD’s wrath. It will not satisfy their hunger or fill their stomachs, for it has caused them to stumble into sin. Ezekiel 7:19 NIV

In an updated and expanded version of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, the Organisation for Econ…

African Horn in 'worst drought' in 60 years

Prophecy Sign:  Frequency of  drought and famines to increase all around the world as the last days approach

What strange times we live in.  While some areas of the world are seeing record floods, other areas are being parched.  Droughts and the effects of drought, that being famine, is definitely one of the sure signs that we are in the last days of this dispensation, and near to the time of Christ's return to this earth.
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
I will lay waste the mountains and hills and dry up all their vegetation; I will turn rivers into islands and dry up the pools. Isaiah 42:15 NIV From the article:

South China Sea Disputes Could Lead to War: Report

Prophecy Sign:  Wars and Rumors of Wars

There hasn't been a lot of news of late coming out of Asia with regards to rumors of wars, but that doesn't mean all is settled and well.  In fact, the hatred North Korea has for its Southern neighbor is still vitriolic and could erupt into full-scale war at anytime.  And now there are think-tanks that are concerned with the growing military super-power that is China, and the possibility of war breaking out in Asia over some dispute that China may have with one of it's neighbors. 

As Jesus said, we could expect not only real wars being fought on the ground, but even rumors of wars at the last days prior to his return.

You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. Matthew 24:6-7 NIV

Risks are growing that incidents at sea involving China could lead to war in Asia, po…

Turmoil in Syria may spill out into war for Israel

Prophecy Sign:  Damascus will be destroyed in a coming battle which is foretold in bible prophecy

Syrian President, Bashar Assad should be advised to brush up on his prophetic studies of future events foretold in the Bible. If he does, he would find a particularly frightening coming event for his nations capital. That is, they utter destruction of one of the oldest cities in the world, Damascus.

However, with the current events transpiring in Syria, it would appear no one in that mostly Muslim nation is paying any bit of attention to what the Bible has to say.

A prophecy against Damascus: “See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins. Isaiah 17:1 NIV 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 17:14 NIV

Israel has allegedly sent a message to Syrian President Bashar Assad in recent days, warning him that if he starts a war with the Jewish state …

New global financial crisis alert

Prophecy Sign: The collapse of the global economy

From Greece to Spain, and Italy to Portugal. From America to Japan, Australia to South Korea, and all points in between. The whole global economy is perched on the precipice of disaster. One push, (like the collapse of the Greece economy), could topple the whole house of cards.
It's our contention that the current economy of the world is in for a sudden and drastic shake-up which will allow for the implementation of the New World Order economy of the Antichrist and his minions, (the Globalists). However, this new economy which may seem to prosper for a time will be brought down to ruin by God himself during the latter part of the Tribulation period.
You can read for yourself this economic destruction in the book of Revelation, (chapter 18). Also the book of James foretells a sudden collapse of wealth at the end times:
Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you. Your wealth has rotted, and mot…

Another Step Closer To A One World Religion

Prophecy Sign: The establishment of a global religious system, (a one world religion), which will work alongside the Antichrist during the Tribulation

The book of Revelation, (chapter 17), describes the culmination of the world's globalists and elites plan for a one world religious system. This system, will be headed by a person that bible prophecy refers to as the beast from the earth, (Revelation 13), or as many prophecy experts refer to as the False Prophet. This person and his new global religious system will be used to force people to worship the Antichrist.
So much is happening on this front of late, that it staggers the imagination. Christianity is being co-opted by many false teachers and leaders and is being pushed towards an ecumenical convergence with the other main religions of the world into this new abomination that God has declared he will personally wipe out.
Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “‘Come out of her, my people,’ so that you will not share in her s…

The Greek crisis brings us even closer to the long-planned European empire

Prophecy Sign: The emergence of the Revived Roman Empire, from which, the Antichrist will arise and the tentacles of his global rule will spread.

We have warned for several months that the current economic situation in the European Union may be the catalyst to a renewal and reconstruction of the present E.U. into a more consolidated EuropeanSuper-State. This Super-State will require each of its members to give up even more of their individual economic and financial sovereignties.
From this new super-power, would come the future world leader known to us simply as the Antichrist. He would impose a new financial world order under the watchful eyes of 10 new economic regional overseers.
“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, d…

Is the ‘Peace Process’ the Road to War?

Prophecy Sign: A future war in the Middle-East which will see the bordering nations of Israel, seek the destruction of the Jewish State.

We have warned before that this unilateral United Nations declaration that the Palestinians are seeking has the high probability of turning into a war, rather than a peaceful settlement. In seeking a U.N. declaration of statehood based on the pre-1967 borders, (which would divide Jerusalem), the Palestinians are doing an end-around any further peace negotiations with Israel. For their part, Israel would never accept any declaration that means a threat to it's own existence, nor would they negotiate away any part of the City of Jerusalem.
So if the U.N. goes ahead and declares a new Arab state called Palestine, and the Israelis refuse to accept any such unilaterally declared borders, one can see the problems it would cause. It would in fact lead to a war which may become the fulfillment of the prophecy of Psalm 83, (as well as Obadiah and Isaiah 17)…

Enter the dragon 'to save the euro’

Prophecy Sign: A powerful economic and military bloc will emerge out of the East at the end times

China certainly has come a long ways in a short period of time. From a heavily populated, but insular and introverted nation, to a full-fledged super power with the biggest economy in the world, and a impressive military build-up in recent years.
Bible prophecy tells us that a group known as the Kings of the East, will march on the holy land near the end of the Tribulation period. This army will consist of some 200 million soldiers. Considering the combined populations of China and India is close to 2.5 billion, it's not hard to imagine these eastern nations cobbling together such an immense number of soldiers.
The book of Daniel also notes that during the Tribulation period, the Antichrist will receive troubling news from the East, which is perhaps early warnings of this massive military build-up at the time of the end.
But reports from the east and the north will alarm him, and he will …

Here comes another lost tribe

Prophecy Sign:  The gathering of the dispersed Jewish people from the 4 corners of the planet, back to the land of their ancestors, (the land of Israel).
A sure sign that we are in the very last day?  The return of the Jewish people from every corner on the planet to their ancestral home that God gave them as an eternal inheritance.  That being the land of Israel. Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west. will say to the north, 'Give them up!' and to the south, 'Do not hold them back.' Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth—Isaiah 43:5-6 NIV The days are coming,' declares the LORD, 'when I will bring my people Israel and Judah back from captivity and restore them to the land I gave their forefathers to possess,' says the LORD." Jeremiah 30:3 NIV "'For I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into you…

Keeping an eye on Yellowstone's supervolcano

Prophecy Sign:  An increase in major seismic activity, (earthquakes and volcanoes), as we approach the last days and Christ Jesus' return
A prophecy in the book of Revelation seems to describe a mighty eruption that blackens the sky, as the sky seemingly rolls up like a scroll.  Land masses will be moved from their places, and debris will fall to earth like falling stars.  Sure sounds like the eruption of a mighty supervolcano to us.
I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. Revelation 6:12-15 NIV
From the a…

Cave Researchers Explore Stream-Filled Cavern at Entrance to Jerusalem

Prophecy Sign:  Water will flow up from the depths from below Jerusalem, at the return to earth of Jesus Christ.
An interesting article about ancient waterways under the city of Jerusalem.  There is an underground stream flowing through the limestone formations deep under the Holy City.  When Jesus Christ makes his soon return to this earth, the waters below Jerusalem, upon where he touches down, will flow towards the seas. On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south. Zechariah 14:4 NIV On that day living water will flow out from Jerusalem, half to the eastern sea and half to the western sea, in summer and in winter. Zechariah 14:8 NIV From the article: Hebrew University of Jerusalem researchers have conducted an initial survey of what appears to be an important, ancient water source in a cave that was been dis…

PA Claims Israel Steals Gas in Exploration of Gaza Waters

Prophecy Sign:  Israel will come into vast riches beneath her sands and seas at the time of the end.  Radically changing the geo-political scene in the Middle East.

An interesting series of events are now occurring that will have huge ramifications in the geo-political world, setting up the fulfillment of future bible prophecy.

Israel is discovering vast reserves of both natural gas and shale oil under her sands and seas. Just as bible prophecy said would happen at the time of the end. At the same time, the so called Arab Spring of revolutions has the potential of interrupting or cutting off energy supplies to the western world. What do you suppose would happen if the Arab world attempted to extort the Western world yet again by restricting energy supplies, (as they did during the oil embargos of the early 1980's), but Israel, with her new found riches stepped in to fill the gap? Quite possibly you would have an irate bunch of Arab Muslims that would seek the destruction of Israel a…

Unsolved Mystery: Vanishing Bees Stump Scientists

Prophecy Sign:  The beast of the field, the birds of the air, and the fish of the seas, will perish as a sinful world continues to reject the true God of the Universe.
Yesterday we posted a blog about the world’s oceans and how scientists are greatly concerned that many ocean species could be wiped out in the next few years. Today we have further evidence that the living things on this planet are in peril because of the sinfulness of mankind. Bees are vanishing from the world which will have vast negative affects on plant pollination and food production. Is the world now being sent a message from God to wake up and repent while there is still time? "I will sweep away both men and animals; I will sweep away the birds of the air and the fish of the sea. The wicked will have only heaps of rubble when I cut off man from the face of the earth," declares the LORD. Zephaniah 1:3 NIV From the article: It's been five years since a Pennsylvania beekeeper sounded the alarm about the m…

Are You Ready For a World Governed by Islamic Law?

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The establishment of a global religious system which will work alongside the global political/financial system of the Antichrist during the Tribulation.
There are many ideas as to just what the false religious system will be which is warned of in the book of Revelation. The most accepted view is that the Roman Church, (Catholicism), will continue with its ecumenical movement drawing in all the other branches of Christendom under her wing. As the true bible believing churches become ever more watered down in their teachings and swing towards the feel-good philosophies of the emergent church movement, the potential for unity with the Roman church becomes every greater.
Then there are those that believe the false religious system will be the ever growing religion of Islam. Not as wild an idea as you might think given the exponential growth of Islam in Europe and the seeming reverence the western main stream media and left wing elites and intelligentsia shower upon the so ca…

Number Of Recorded Earthquakes Rises Sharply

Prophecy Sign:  Increase in earthquakes occurring in many different parts of the world, at the last days.
We noted in one of yesterdays blog entries of all the recent earthquakes that have occurred in the last week. Well, we certainly aren't the only ones taking note of the seeming increase in seismic activity around the globe. An increase, just as bible prophecy warned us of. 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: 2011 is on target to record the largest number of earthquakes in a single year for at least 12 years. Research by Irish Weather Online, using data from the US Geological Survey (USGS), has found that earthquake activity (5.0-9.9 magnitude) from 01 January to 19 June 2011 is already exceeding the total annual seismic activity for the years 2001, 2002 and 2003.  2011’s total number of recorded earthquakes is also expected to exceed the most seismically active…

Report: Hezbollah preparing for war with Israel

Prophecy Sign:  The neighboring nations of Israel will conspire together at the last days to eliminate the Jewish nation forever.

War drums continue to pound in the middle-east, with the enemies of Israel busily conspiring together and forming plans to once and for all, destroy Israel as a nation.  There plans will come to not. “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.” With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you— the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, of Moab and the Hagrites, Byblos, Ammon and Amalek, Philistia, with the people of Tyre. Even Assyria has joined them to reinforce Lot’s descendants.Psalm 83:4-8 NIV The Tents of Edom refers to the Palestinians of the West Bank and southern Jordan. The Moabites refers to the Palestinians and central Jordanians. The Hagarites corresponds with Egypt, Gebal, (Byblos), with Hezbollah and the Lebanese. Ammon includes the Palestinians and northern Jordanians, Philli…

All signs say Iran is racing toward a nuclear bomb

Prophecy Sign:  Iran, (Persia), will become involved in major prophetic events at the end times.  Specifically, war with Israel.
Iran, (Persia in the bible), is foretold in bible prophecy to become a major force in end-times events. Iran will join with several other nations from the middle-east, North Africa and the northern regions, (likely Russia), in an attempted invasion and conquest of Israel. (Ezekiel 38/39).

While we don't know what exactly will transpire in this battle, we do know that the aftermath of the battle will not be pleasant. For seven years, the peoples of the region will use the abandoned armaments as fuel, and for seven months after the battle, the people of Israel will systematically cleanse the land and bury the dead, in fact going so far as to mark the bones of the dead with a flag for reference for the gravediggers. It almost sounds like a containment operation, (perhaps the aftermath of a nuclear explosion?)
For seven months the Israelites will be burying the…

Greece Budget Hole Threatens to Swallow Europe

Prophecy Sign:  The collapse of the world economy
All is not well in the European Union, with Greece perched on the precipice and ready to topple. Concerns are that this toppling could lead to a whole series of dominos falling, (Spain, Portugal, Italy and others), leading to another economic tsunami which could reach the shores of every continent.The potential of this tsunami is very real and could be the catalyst that ushers in the new global economic order of the Antichrist.
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 treated as a thing unclean. Their silver and gold will not be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD’s wrath. Ezekiel 7:19 NIV From t…

The Financial Collapse Of Greece: The Canary In The Coal Mine For The Global Economy?

Prophecy Sign: The collapse of the global economic system

Bible prophecy warns that a time is coming when the entire global economic system will collapse. So devastating will be this collapse, that all things we now consider of value will become worthless. Even gold and silver will be cast into the streets as just another worthless metal.

We believe that there will very soon be a shaking up of the present economic world order which will allow for the implementation of the system of the Antichrist who will rule over this new system. The utter collapse of this new world economic system, to the point where all that is considered valuable will be of no value at all, will occur near to the end of the Tribulation period.

The bible warns of this in the book of Revelation and calls this economic system, the Babylonian system, and will be taken down by God himself as he destroys the present God of this world, the almighty dollar, the root of all evil.

Terrified at her torment, they will stand f…
