Why an Attack on Iran and Another War in Middle East are More Likely Than Not

Prophecy Sign:  Coming war in the Middle-East


Things are heating up big time between Iran and Israel, and Iran and America. Will 2012 be the year that this region explodes into war? While there have been wars in the middle-east in recent history between Israel and its Arab enemies, those wars were conventionally fought. Any future war in the middle-east could be far more deadly with both chemical weapons and nuclear weapons coming into play.
As we always ask you to do; please pray for the peace of this region. While we know prophecy will ultimately be fulfilled, (and the deadly wars that are warned of will happen), we as Christians still must pray for peace and attempt to play the peacemaker.

You will hear of wars and rumours 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

For the United States, certain actions by Iran will set in motio…

The Russian Billionaire Running For President Wants To Create A New Currency For Europe

Prophecy Sign:  The identity of the future Antichrist



First off, let us state this emphatically; We have no idea of the identity of the future Antichrist. With that said, we believe that Satan has had a prime candidate standing by the ready since Jesus ascended into heaven nearly 2,000 years ago. Of course that person has change each generation as one candidate dies off and another is born. So somewhere in this world right now is the person Satan will make his man when God determines that the time of Jacobs Troubles need to begin.
If we are as close to the end of this dispensations as we think we are, then the future Antichrist should already be making his rise to the top of the political/financial/economic world. He will likely be somebody that comes completely out of "left field", (as they say).
The reason we are including this article on Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov, is to show how quietly and quickly someone from seemingly out of nowhere can suddenly become very im…

How a loss of faith in politicians and democracy could make 2012 the most frightening year in living memory

Prophecy Sign:  Perilous Times


The year 2012 is not shaping up to be a great year for the world, (but perhaps a great year for those of us waiting upon the coming of Jesus Christ).


This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 Timothy 3:1 KJV

From the article:
The dawn of a new year is usually a time of hope and ambition, of dreams for the future and thoughts of a better life. But it is a long time since many of us looked forward to the new year with such anxiety, even dread. Here in Britain, many economists believe that by the end of 2012 we could well have slipped into a second devastating recession. The Coalition remains delicately poised; it would take only one or two resignations to provoke a wider schism and a general election.But the real dangers lie overseas. In the Middle East, the excitement of the Arab Spring has long since curdled into sectarian tension and fears of Islamic fundamentalism. And with so many of the world’s oil supplies concentrated in the …

Why the West Won't Hear about Persecution

Prophecy Sign:  Christian Persecution


They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, a time is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is offering a service to God. John 16:2 NIV

From the article:
Hundreds of millions of Christians have suffered discrimination or even persecution in lands as diverse as China and India, but mostly in countries where Islam is the top religion. Despite this, persecution of Christians is one topic the American public doesn't hear much about. One possible reason: an anti-Christian bias among Western elites. These Western elites often control the media and educational institutions that spread information to the general public. But they rarely cover or discuss the reality that Christians may well be the most persecuted religious group on the planet. It has been estimated that Christians number some 2.2 billion people. Harassment of them can range from loss of life to loss of livelihood.

Iran Defense Minister: Israeli strike would be a suicide mission

Prophecy Sign:  The coming middle-east wars

Iran under its current leadership is a very dangerous and unpredictable player in the epi-centre, (as Joel Rosenberg like to call the Middle-East).  Just what would happen if Israel made an expected strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities, or if the world ratcheted up further sanctions on the rogue state, are anybodies guess.  We do know that under the leadership of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the various Mullahs, these people believe it to be their destiny and that of Iran’s, to bring about chaos in the world in hopes of bringing their messianic figure, (the 12th Imam), into the world.
So a full-scale middle-east war with Israel, or a global economic crisis due to oil shipments curtailed would be right up the alley of this bunch.  This is what the leadership of the Western World simply doesn't seem to understand. 
We believe the first shot in this coming series of battles will be by Israel’s necessary bombing of Iran’s nuclear faci…

Will 2012 be a record disaster year?

Prophecy Sign:  The roaring and tossing of the Seas - anomalous weather patterns

The year 2011 was indeed a record year for both weather disasters and natural disasters, and the year 2012 is looking every bit as ominous, (in the weather end of things at least).  And the world is looking increasingly unprepared for these types of coming disasters.  No wonder Jesus made the following warning that would pertain to the last days:
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 articles: From floods that crippled countries, to mega cyclones, huge blizzards, killer tornadoes to famine-inducing droughts, 2011 has been another record-breaker for bad weather. While it is too early to predict what 2012 will be like, insurers and weather prediction agencies point to a clear trend: the world's weather is becoming more extreme and more costly. Following are some early forecasts …

2012: Make-or-break year for the eurozone

Prophecy Sign:  The revived Roman Empire - the Euro Superstate

If you have been following our blog for a while now, you will know that it is our belief that the final world empire, or the revived Roman Empire, will be a reformatted Euro Zone.  This will be a scaled down, highly centralized political and financial entity.  Each member state will have to surrender much of its sovereignty to become a part of this new United States of Europe. 
From this new economic and financial experiment will arise 10 kingdoms.  We believe these kingdoms will be global in nature, (10 economic zones spread across the globe).  After a major economic collapse, (that many observers believe is just around the corner), the world will be looking for a new way of doing business.  These new regional economic zones will be the suggested answer.  Out of these 10 zones will arise the Antichrist, (we believe from somewhere in Europe), who will then take control and implement his ultimate agenda, with the assistanc…

Unrelenting Global Economic Crisis: A Doomsday View of 2012

Prophecy Sign:  The collapse of the world markets and the global economy

The year 2012 is nearly upon us, so to everyone out there...Happy New Year, and oh by the way, the economy may well collapse or be radically changed in the coming year.  Cherry news don't you think?  We thank our God that he takes care of his own, and supplies all our needs, (Philippians 4:19).  If we didn't have that assurance, life would look pretty bleak about now.  If you haven't this assurance which only God Almighty can provide, then right now make the call to Jesus Christ and ask him to become the Lord of your life.  You will be glad you did and all these things will be added unto you, (Matthew 6:33).

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. Jame…

Nigerian Christians Fear More Church Bombings

Prophecy Sign:  Christian persecution
Do you suppose Jesus Christ was looking some 2,000 years into the future when he warned that Christians would be killed by those that they were thinking they were doing a service unto God?  Isn't that what is happening now in many Muslim dominated nations?  Christians are being persecuted and killed by a religion that believes to kill the infidel is to do God’s, (Allah’s), will.
Please pray for your persecuted Christian brethren and especially so for those in the Islamic controlled regions of the world.
They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, a time is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is offering a service to God. John 16:2 NIV From the articles: An Islamic group has claimed responsibility for Christmas Day church bombings in Nigeria, which killed 39 people. Explosions ripped through five churches across the African country as Christians celebrated the birth of Jesus Christ. The spokesman for a group calling themselves Bo…

One calendar, one time zone for the whole world?

Prophecy Sign:  The Antichrist will attempt to change times and laws

We dug up this little gem of an article in our perusal of the news sites today.  This could have profound implications in the near future if what we read here is applicable to a prophecy recorded in the book of Daniel.  In that prophecy we are told that the future Antichrist will attempt to change the times and laws:
He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time. Daniel 7:25 NIV
This article is amazing in that researchers are attempting to do now, just what has been warned of during the rule of the Antichrist.  We find this article to be most interesting to say the least, especially the part on how this new calendar would work will with financial calculations and transactions.  For more information on this prophecy, check out the following link: Antichrist and the Change of…

Merry Christmas to all

Image
A wonderful Christmas to all of you. May God bless you and keep you.


We are going to take a few days off to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Did you know that most historians peg the birth of Christ in the late summer or fall? Just a little trivia.

We hope you have a wonderful time with family and friends. But do take some time to remember the reason for the season; That being the coming of our redeemer who came to this earth to give use all the means to reconcile with Yahweh God. We are only asked to confess that we are living under sin and that we trully believe that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life, (John 14:6)

The reason we do this blog is to hopefully encourage all of you in the great commission of Jesus Christ. To bring the peoples of this world to a right relationship with our heavenly father. To help them in making the decision to accept the free offer of salvation through Jesus Christ. This blog attracts several hundred visits each day. Consider yourself as…

FCC official: ‘Internet freedom’ threatened

Image
Prophecy Sign: The coming global police/surveillance state


Someday a global authority will seek and gain control of the internet. This authority will be usurped by the future Antichrist and he will use it to shut down the voices that attempt to warn the world as to who and what the Antichrist is and what he represents. Such voices as this website and others like it.
From the article: The United States is unprepared for an international fight that’s brewing over whether the Internet will remain free from government regulations or fall increasingly under the control of emerging global powers, Federal Communications Commissioner Robert McDowell warned Monday. The 193-member International Telecommunications Union (ITU), a U.N. agency, will meet in Dubai next December to renegotiate the 24-year-old treaty that deals with international oversight of the Internet. A growing number of countries are pushing greater governmental control and management of the Web’s availability, financial model and…

'Muslim Mafia' Targeting Religious Freedom?

We as Christians need to be vigilant and watchful of what the Islamic world is doing. Where ever the religion of Islam becomes dominate, religious freedoms for others disappear. Islam is not just a religion but also an ideology that is diametrically opposed to both Judaism and Christianity.

We can love the Muslim people and continue to pray for their eyes to be opened to the word and ears to hear the gospel message. However we still need to ready to take a stand for the principals in which we believe, which includes a healthy respect for free speech, including the criticism of religions and belief systems. Criticism of religious belief is not always synonymous with persecution for religious belief.
If the Islamic world has its way, criticism of religion, (which mainly means Islam), would result in persecution for the offender.

From the articles:
Free speech and religious liberty are two of America's most cherished protections. But if the Organization of Islamic Cooperation gets its…

Prophecy Sign:  The roaring and tossing of the seas
The wildness of weather continues to roll on through the year 2011, and with no signs that 2012 or beyond will be any better.  And we wonder why people of the world shriek and wail at what they perceive to be the cause of all this....you and me.  We personally don't believe the consensus theory, as that great big ball of burning hydrogen in the sky has much more to do with the earth’s weather patterns than anything mankind can do.  Regardless of that, the world is still in an uproar over the roaring and tossing seas.  Just as Jesus said would be the case. 

(Check out the video below labeled OMG. You've heard the phrase, "a face in the crowd", but how about a face in the cloud?  Very weird and yes it is a perfectly defined side profile of a human face)
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

Alarm as Dutch lab creates highly contagious killer flu

Prophecy Sign:  Pestilence and Plagues

Obviously the parents of these European Scientists, (now madly creating death in a Dutch lab), should have taken away the brats chemistry sets when they were small children.  Lord only knows what they were creating and exploding back then.

Honest to Pete!! How can you rationalize the creation of a potentially deadly plague that could wipe out millions of people if it were to get in the wrong hands?  No wonder the world is warned in the book of Revelation of these coming deadly plagues.  We can only pray that God Almighty will continue to protect the world from itself.
I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:8 NIV

From the article: A deadly strain of bird flu with the potential to infect and kill millions of people has been created in a lab…

Christianity goes global as world's largest religion

Prophecy Sign:  The Gospel will be preached to all the earth, then the end will come.

No longer can it be said that the gospel has not reached all nations and regions of the earth.  Jesus said when this happened, that the time of the end was right around the corner.
And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24:14 NIV

From the articles: Christians are by far the largest religious group on the planet, and the religion has gone truly global over the past century, according to a new report out Monday, which finds some of the world's biggest Christian communities in surprising places. Europe was the clear center of world Christianity one hundred years ago, but today the Americas are home to more than a third of all Christians. In fact, the United States has the world's largest Christian population, of more than 247 million, followed by Brazil and Mexico. China also appears on the list of top 1…

Franklin Graham: Islamists 'Lining Up' Against Israel

Prophecy Sign:  The Psalm 83 War.

Even Franklin Graham can see the forces of the Muslim/Arab world are conspiring to come against Israel in war.  The year 2012 according to the article below may be a very challenging year for Israel with the threat of war on all fronts. 
Asaph the song writer wrote of this coming alliance of the Arab world, (Psalm 83), that would attempt to eradicate the Jewish State during the last days:
O God, do not keep silent; be not quiet, O God, be not still. See how your enemies are astir, how your foes rear their heads. With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish. “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more.” Psalm 83:1-4 NIV From the article: Two radical Muslim groups have again earned the top spots in Egypt's parliamentary elections. Preliminary results show the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party and the Salafi al-Nour Party got 75 percent of the…

Iran is just months away from a nuke - a red line for US and Israel

Prophecy Sign:  Middle-East war and Iran's destiny


There is a prophecy in the bible that we have only just recently come to knowledge of.  That of the prophecy of Jeremiah and a people group called Elam.  Turns out Elam is the present day region of southwest modern-day Iran. Home to Bushehr and the Iranian nuclear program.  This prophecy speaks of Elam being utterly shattered and destroyed with the peoples living there scattered to the corners of the earth.

Are we now seeing the stage being set for the fulfillment of this prophecy?  What would happen if America or Israel where to strike the nuclear installations in this region?  No one knows just how far down the path of nuclear weaponry Iran has gotten.  Should Iran be very close and a military strike occur, this region may in fact go up like a match; Scattering the citizens thereof to points across the globe as they attempt to escape the nuclear fallout. 
I will bring against Elam the four winds from the four quarters of the heav…

Mind reading machines on their way: IBM

Prophecy Sign:  Increased knowledge and the coming "Mark of the Beast"


The pace at which knowledge is increasing is mind boggling. 

Speaking of the mind and technology, scientists are now researching how to link a persons mind with personal devices such as a smartphone or a computer.  Simply think what you want the device to do, and it will do it.  And they may tie this in with your personal finances. (Aren't we warned that a time is coming when you will not be able to buy or sell without a certain form of mark?  Interesting).
Science fiction is quickly becoming science fact.  And no longer is the idea of an entire globe of people being forced to accept a mark to participate in day to day commerce something out of the realm of impossibility.

But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. Daniel 12:4 KJV

Egypt's Islamists claim sweep of second round vote

Prophecy Sign: Egypt - A time of revolutions and upheavals.


Isaiah's prophecy, (chapter 19), of Egypt’s destiny in the last days is very clear. It will be a time when Egyptian will fight against Egyptian. A time when a cruel master will take over the rule of the Egyptians. A time when Egypt will be overwhelmed by terrible events that will befall the NileRiver. But through it all, God will bring the Egyptians to a final acceptance of him as the only true God of the Universe.

Some of these events we are now seeing being played out before our eyes. Soon the remainder of these prophecies will begin to unfold and will be fulfilled as the prophet Isaiah was told would happen


A prophecy against Egypt: See, the LORD rides on a swift cloud and is coming to Egypt.
The idols of Egypt tremble before him, and the hearts of the Egyptians melt with fear. “I will stir up Egyptian against Egyptian— brother will fight against brother, neighbour against neighbour, city against city, kingdom again…

Our decade from hell will get worse in 2012

Prophecy Sign:  The coming collapse of the world markets and the global economy


You know things are getting pretty bad in the markets when financial news writers and observers start comparing what is to come with the dark days of the Tribulation, (see the second article below).

We know things will only get worse in the global economy as we are told as much in bible prophecy. James 5, Revelation 18 and Ezekiel 7 are some of the biblical prophecies that indicate a coming time of economic calamites where even gold and silver will be of little use.


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

Fasten your seat belts: 2011 was far worse than expected. Our earlier predictions for America’s Worst Decade just got worse. As …

Pope Benedict XVI's health in serious decline as 85th birthday, Christmas approach

Image
A non Biblical Prohecy Sign:  The Last Pope


Bible prophecy is the only prophecy that has shown itself to be 100% accurate, and we only accept any other prophecies to be at most, interesting or intriguing. One such prophecy is that of the last Pope. In this prophecy, a Irish Monk by the name of St. Malachy was given a look into the future as to the identity of the last 112 popes. The current Pope, Benedict, is the 111th Pope on Malachy's list, and according to this prophecy, the final Pope will come next. According to Malachy's prophecy, the next Pope will be at the head of the Roman Church during the coming Tribulation period.

Interesting to read that the health of Pope Benedict is in serious decline. At 85 years of age, Benedict is obviously nearing the end of his days on this planet. We pray for the Pope, (as we do for all Catholics), that his eyes will be opened to the truth of the gospel message, and that if he has not already done so, will come to Christ in acceptance of …
