Stock Market, World Economy Headed For Crash, Some Experts Say

Prophecy Sign:  The collapse of world markets and the global economic system

Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to save them on the day of the LORD's wrath. In the fire of his jealousy the whole world will be consumed, for he will make a sudden end of all who live in the earth." Zephaniah 1:18 NIV

Stock Market, World Economy Headed For Crash, Some Experts Say
Although news regarding the economy has been somewhat cautiously hopeful in recent months, most people haven’t even really begun to shake off the pall of a few years of economic turmoil and a relatively sucky overall decade- but if some experts on the economy are correct, the worst is ahead of us when it comes to stock market and general economic pain. The dissolution of the housing bubble was only one of the things that caused a spiral of financial woe both in the US and outside it, and one expert says that the worst aftereffects of bad debt are still to come. USA Today quotes Harry Dent, who authored a book …
Prophecy Sign:  Earthquakes in diverse areas

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
6.6 magnitude earthquake strikes off Greenland’s coast
A 6.6 magnitude earthquake was detected off the eastern coast of Greenland, the US Geological Survey reported. No damage or injuries were reported. The epicenter was recorded at a depth of 8.6 kilometers in the Norwegian Sea, some 93 kilometers northwest of the town of Olonkinbyen on the Norwegian island of Jan Mayen. The island has no permanent population. A research station is located there, which was housing about 50 people when the quake occurred. The station’s workers are all involved in research and maintenance at the facility, Erik Persheim, an electronics engineer at the station, told the AP. The station normally houses about 18 engineers and other personnel, he said. The European-Mediterranean Seismol…

‘Virtually Untreatable’ Tuberculosis Threat Rising, Study Finds

Prophecy Sign:  Pestilence and Plagues - Disease outbreaks

There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven. Luke 21:11 NIV

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

‘Virtually Untreatable’ Tuberculosis Threat Rising, Study Finds
Almost half of tuberculosis patients who received prior treatment were resistant to a second-line drug, suggesting the deadly disease may become “virtually untreatable,” according to a new study. Among 1,278 patients who were resistant to two or more first-line tuberculosis drugs in Estonia, Latvia, Peru, Philippines, Russia, South Africa, South Korea and Thailand, 43.7 percent showed resistance to at least one second-line drug, according to a study led by Tracy Dalton at the U…

‘Islamist terrorism is the biggest threat in Europe’

Prophecy Sign:  Perilous Times - The Islamic Threat

While the Islamic threat continues to spread through Europe, members of the "Weasel in the Stream Media", (as L.A. Marzulli likes to call the Mainstream Media), attempt to sell us the lie that there is absolutely nothing to worry about, (see the two article links below).

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

‘Islamist terrorism is the biggest threat in Europe’
Islamist terrorism and the radicalization of young Muslims has taken center stage in Europe. With schools, universities and even sport clubs becoming hotbeds of Islamism, experts argue that some European countries have willingly allowed it. Claude Monique, an expert on counterterrorism and extremism and the director of the European Strategic Intelligence and SecurityCenter, told RT that while European intelligence was engaged in battling a bigger threat – communism and the former Soviet Union – it ignored what has become a de…

Germany backs law that would charge Google for linking to news

Prophecy Sign:  The One World Government - managing the message

Soon, sites like this one will be no more as governments pass new laws to shut down online freedom.  Until then we will continue to do our best to inform you, our readers, of world events as related to bible prophecy.

Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the Lord and against his Anointed One. Psalm 2:1-2 NIV 

Germany backs law that would charge Google for linking to news
The German cabinet backed a draft law requiring Google and other news aggregators to pay for summarized information they display before linking to a source – a move that has outraged the Internet giant, politicians and bloggers alike. The move, backed by publishing giants like the Axel Springer group, was originally proposed by the Federation of German News Publishers – who were very upset with lost advertising revenue. The law is about piracy and stealing con…

Real Terminator Eye: First-ever bionic implant gives blind woman sight

Prophecy Sign:  The increase in knowledge

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

Real Terminator Eye: First-ever bionic implant gives blind woman sight
For the first time ever, scientists have given a previously blind woman sight by way of a bionic eye. The Australian-designed implant, which resembles the model worn by Arnie in The Terminator, is likely to transform the lives of millions worldwide. The device consists of 24 electrodes attached to the retina. Each time they receive a signal from the outside world, they stimulate the retina, which then sends an impulse back to the brain. So far, scientists have used the bionic eye to create simple patterns from the twenty four signals – like the shapes of a tree or a house – and see whether Ashworth is able to identify them. Over the next 18 months, scientists will work in the laboratory with Ashworth and two other s…
Prophecy Sign:  Civil Strife, Uprisings and Revolutions

Civil strife and uprisings are not just a European or Middle-East thing, as they are happening on all continents around the globe.  Two such cases today.  Student radicals in Quebec and Chile clashed with authorities in their quest to see governments spend even more monies on their various pet peeves, (usually tuition fees).

Just as Jesus said, we would be witness to these kind of events near the time of his return.

When you hear of wars and revolutions, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away.” Luke 21:9 NIV
Chile education crisis: Water cannons and tear gas on the streets of Santiago Clashes have broken out as tens of thousands of students and their supporters demanded improvements to Chile's public education system in the streets of Santiago. Police used tear gas and water cannons to disperse the most radical protesters. The march unfolded in a festive atmosphere and ended wi…

Stakelbeck on Terror: The Harbinger, Part 1

Many of you may have heard of Jonathan Cahn, and have either read his new book, The Harbinger, or have seen the video, (more info can be found by following this link:  The Harbinger ).  Erik Stakelbeck recently interviewed Mr. Cahn which can be seen in this weeks Stakelbeck on Terror program episode.
“The bricks have fallen down,but we will rebuild with dressed stone; the fig trees have been felled,but we will replace them with cedars.” Isaiah 9:10 NIV

Stakelbeck on Terror: The Harbinger, Part 1
On this week’s Stakelbeck on Terror show, we sit down with Jonathan Cahn, author of the runaway New York Times bestseller, The Harbinger. Cahn explains the motivation behind the book and how its prophetic message ties back to America's destiny and events like 9/11 and the weakening of the global economy.

Deaf boy's name violates weapons policy: School

Not a Prophecy Sign:  Stupidity Reigns Supreme

We see so many articles these days which just blow us away in their stupidity.  So much so that we are starting a new blog label entitled, you guessed it;  "Stupidity Reigns Supreme".  Periodically when we come across these stories, we will post them, just so you can give your head a shake and say, "What the????"

Our first entry under this dubious heading is of a Nebraska preschool which has told a family that their deaf child's way of hand signing his name violates the schools "Weapons in School" policy ban.  Why?? Because the child forms his fingers into the shape of a gun, (his name is Hunter by the way).

So let's get this straight.......Because the child signs his name, which is Hunter, by forming his little fingers into the form of a weapon, he is now on the wrong side of the law????  What's the kid going to do......shoot his desk mate with his loaded finger???  The only thing loaded on a pre…

Will the next iPhone replace your wallet?

Prophecy Sign:  The Cashless society

Yet another article attesting to the growth in the cashless society that we are racing towards.  Personally, we don't mind having to ditch a wallet full of cash for the ease of digital commerce.  However, we also realize that this race towards the cashless society will bring about a new system of commerce which will require every person to bear a mark in order to be able to buy or sell in the new economy.

He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. Revelation 13:16-17 NIV

Will the next iPhone replace your wallet? 
The iPhone has already replaced digital cameras, MP3 players and portable games consoles for most owners. Now it could be about to replace your wallet. The next iPhone, which is believed to launch in just two weeks time, is expected to come …

Egypt prof: Israel will be gone by next year

Prophecy Sign:  The coming prophetic middle-east wars - Egypt

Only a couple of years ago, Israel did not have to regard it's border with Egypt with two much caution or alarm, as the 30 year peace treaty between the two nations kept things in check.  Fast forward through a heated revolution,  (in the largest Arab nation in the world), which has brought into power an Islamist prone President and wonders of wonders, every Egyptian with a hate on for the Jewish state is on his hind legs howling at the moon threatening the demise of Israel.

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
Egypt prof: Israel will be gone by next year
An Egyptian political science professor told an Iranian TV station that, with Allah…

Why Everybody's Going To War in the Middle East

Prophecy Sign:  The coming prophetic middle-east wars

While not every geo-political observer will agree on who the good guys and bad guys are in the current middle-east crisis, they do agree on one thing;  War seems to be approaching quickly.  We have two more op-ed articles which go into some depth as the current situation and what may play out over the next few months.

This is what the Lord Almighty says: “See, I will break the bow of Elam, (Iran), the mainstay of their might. I will bring against Elam the four winds from the four quarters of the heavens; I will scatter them to the four winds, and there will not be a nation where Elam’s exiles do not go. Jeremiah 49:35-36 NIV

Why Everybody's Going To War in the Middle East
Iran wants war because they believe they can withstand an Israel and US air assault and that unless they are invaded and occupied they can claim victory. No Middle East nation has ever been victorious against either the US or Israel and to declare victory again…

The rise of the cyborgs: Scientists reveal new method to 'grow' electronic sensors inside human tissue

Prophecy Sign:  Increase in knowledge at the time of the end

Engineering tissue growth in the human body by inserting electronic sensors in the body to stimulate cell growth.  Perhaps in the near future, hearts and other organs can be grown in the body to replace defective body parts.  Knowledge is indeed growing at exponential rates, just as prophecy said would happen.

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

The rise of the cyborgs: Scientists reveal new method to 'grow' electronic sensors inside human tissue
Cyborgs melding human and robotic technology together have finally come a step closer to reality. Researchers at MIT in Boston have revealed a new technique that can place sensors inside human tissue. To control the three-dimensional shape of engineered tissue, researchers grow cells on tiny, sponge-like scaffolds. These devices can be implanted into p…

Merkel Pushes for Convention to Draft New EU Treaty

Prophecy Sign:  The Revived Roman Empire - the EU Superstate

There are as many interpretations of what will constitute the final world empire of bible prophecy as there are students of bible prophecy.  Some students envision a European based empire, while others see Middle-Eastern based empire, (the two legs of Nebuchadnezzar's dream - Western Rome and Eastern Rome).  Within the 10 kings, some prophecy experts contend 10 European nations, while others see 10 Islamic nations.

It's our belief that if the empire of the Antichrist is indeed global, and if the 10 kings we read of in both Daniel and Revelation have not yet been given power, then the final world empire will begin in one area of the world and spread its tentacles globally.  We see the following scenario;  Revived Rome will be a new European Superstate from which the Antichrist will arise from.  The nations of Western Europe will comprise this new entity.  This template of financial and economic stability will spread gl…

Russian Expert Predicts Obama Will Declare Martial Law in America by End of 2012

Prophecy Sign:  Civil Strife, Revolution, Uprisings

Bible prophecy warns that there will be much civil strife and uprisings during the last days, along with wars and revolutions.  These events may even happen in America.  Judging by the articles below, there are many people preparing for such a scenario, as they see the writing on the wall.

Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. Matthew 24:7 NIV
When you hear of wars and uprisings, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away.” Then he said to them: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. Luke 21:9-10 NIV

Russian Expert Predicts Obama Will Declare Martial Law in America by End of 2012
Igor Panarin, dean the RussianForeignMinistrySchool for future diplomats, believes that President Obama will announce martial law by the end of 2012. He explains: “There’s a 55-45% chance right now that disinteg…

Market crash 'could hit within weeks', warn bankers

Prophecy Sign:  The collapse of world markets and the global economic system

It's our belief that there will be two coming global economic collapses.  The first, (which looks to be right around the corner), will usher in the new economic world order of the Antichrist.  The second collapse will happen during the later part of the Tribulation when God judges this new system and brings it to an end.  More about the second collapse can be learned by reading Revelation 18.

While we do not believe the Church will be here on earth during the second collapse and God's judgement of  the Antichrist controlled economic system, we the Church may in fact be around for much of the first collapse which brings about the system of the Antichrist.  Knowing this, it is prudent for the Christian to plan for that eventuality. Stock up!!

The day is here! It has come! Doom has burst forth, the rod has budded, arrogance has blossomed!  Violence has grown into a rod to punish wickedness; none of the pe…

Prophecy in the News - Guest, Doug Hamp

Prophecy Sign:  The last Generation, the Elect, The Fig Tree

The Prophecy in the News, Daily Updates recently featured, Douglas Hamp, who has a new video out explaining some of the concepts that Jesus spoke of in the Olivet Discourse.  The following short videos, (10 minutes each), briefly touch on three of these concepts;  Who is the last Generations Jesus spoke of, who are the Elect, and what does the Fig Tree represent? Very good teaching.  We recommend watching the segments to understand more.

If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. Matthew 24:22-24 NIV

Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near.…

Countdowns in Teheran and Jerusalem

Prophecy Sign:  The coming War between Israel and Iran - Gog/Magog

If you have a few moments to spare, we suggest clicking on the link to this op-ed article for a very good breakdown of the situation building between Iran and Israel, and the necessity of an attack by Israel against the Iranian nuclear facilities.

While the West dithers and procrastinates, Israel senses its potential annihilation, and knows it must act, and act soon.  War is coming.  Prepare!!

I will make known my holy name among my people Israel. I will no longer let my holy name be profaned, and the nations will know that I the Lord am the Holy One in Israel. It is coming! It will surely take place, declares the Sovereign Lord. This is the day I have spoken of. Ezekiel 38:7-8 NIV 

Countdowns in Teheran and Jerusalem The liberal West has its illusions about the enemy. Israel has little room for those illusions. It will act when Washington is too busy fighting itself to focus on restraining it. It will act because it is a…

Is eye scan technology the future of airport security?

Prophecy Sign:  The global surveillance/police state

The growth in the surveillance state is frightening.  Unmanned drones flying overhead watching the every move of the populace below, eye scan technology that can verify the identity of a person in a matter of seconds, surveillance cameras on nearly every corner and in the air, feeding back data to a centralized database.

Many people would say, well as long as I'm not doing anything wrong, what's the problem?  Well as Benjamin Franklin once said:  "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety".

This coming global surveillance/police state will be a major tool for the future Antichrist to monitor and control the populace of the world.  Any person that disagrees with his claims of being a deity will be rounded up and eliminated by force.  Utilizing this new surveillance system, this "Man of Sin", will find it very easy to track down those…

Hamas top official: Kill every last Jew and American

Prophecy Sign:  The destiny of the Arab/Muslim world

The descendants of Ishmael, (son of Hagar, who was handmaiden to Sarah, the wife of Abraham), where prophesied to be a numerous people, but also a people forever hostile to themselves and everyone else.  Does that not describe today's radical Islamic Arab world?

These descendants of Ishmael would most of all, hate the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who are of course the Hebrew people or the Jewish nation.

Reading through the books of the Prophets of the Old Testament we see a constant refrain where at the time of the last days, Yahweh God would judge the Arab nations, (Syria, Egypt, Jordan, etc), by bringing them to ruin, but in the end, restoring a remnant of these people who would come to know Yahweh as their God, rather than the false God, Allah.

The following articles attest to the hostility the Arab/Muslim world holds towards Israel today as well as towards Israel's major supporter, America.

The angel of the …

Earthquakes rattle the ring of Fire

Prophecy Sign:  Earthquakes in diverse places

Earthquakes of magnitudes between the range of 7.0 to 9.0 have struck just about every part of the Ring of Fire over the last several years, except for the West coast of North America.  There have been recent swarms and minor quakes from California to British Columbia, but no great earthquake as yet.  (We do believe the West coast is due for the proverbial big one.  If you live along the coast, you should prepare).

Prophecy warns that a huge earthquake of a magnitude never before experiences will shake the entire world.  The West coast will not be spared.

Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since man has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake. The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath.  Revelation 16:18-19 N…

State Meltdown: Greece on Brink of Total Failure

Prophecy Sign:  The collapse of world markets and the global economic system

Spain and Greece are but harbingers of things to come.  As bad as it is in these nations now, bible prophecy warns that it will get worse throughout the world.  During the Tribulation, food prices will rise dramatically costing a days wages for a days worth of food, (Revelation 6:6), while at the same time, the value of precious metals will tumble making them worthless, (Ezekiel 7:19).

It is our opinion that these future terrible days are not long into the future, (perhaps just around the corner).  Now is the time to place your faith in Christ Jesus who has promised to keep those who know him from the coming time of God's judgement.

Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth. Revelation 3:10 NIV

State Meltdown: Greece on Brink of Total Failure Greece is on the edge of a free fal…

The First Few Minutes of World War III Will Look Like 2012-2013

Prophecy Sign:  The coming prophetic middle-east wars - Iran
Nothing the West does or will do, is going to stop Iran from feverishly working towards its' nuclear weapons goal, and then its' ultimate goal of the annihilation of the state of Israel.  Israel knows this and will not allow another holocaust to occur.  She will attack Iran.  It's only a matter of time.  Watch the short video below to understand why.
'Iran expands nuclear capacity underground' Iran has installed many more uranium enrichment machines in an underground bunker, diplomatic sources said on Thursday, potentially paving the way for a significant expansion of work the West fears is ultimately aimed at making nuclear bombs. Several sources said Iran had put in place additional enrichment centrifuges in its Fordow facility, buried deep inside a mountain to protect it against any enemy strikes. One source suggested it involved hundreds of machines. “Our basic understanding is that they were continuing…

Obama Is Said to Consider Preventive Detention Plan

Prophecy Sign:  The global surveillance/police state to exist during the Tribulation

Lock up those bible believing Christians now!!  They are a threat to the security of the state. (Might by time to move north of the 49th parallel our American friends while you still can).  Check out the video below which is courtesy of MSNBC, (usually a shill for the Obama administration).  The commentator is absolutely incredulous over this most recent of Obama proposals.
It was given powe to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation.  All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world. Revelation 13:7-8 NIV 
Obama Is Said to Consider Preventive Detention Plan President Obama told human rights advocates at the White House on Wednesday that he was mulling the need for a “preventive detention” system…

Syrian envoy: We'll destroy Israeli nuclear facilities with 20 missiles

Prophecy Sign:  The Psalm 83 War - Syria
O God, do not remain silent; do not turn a deaf ear, do not stand aloof, O God. See how your enemies growl, 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,  so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.” Psalm 83:1-4 NIV

Syrian envoy: We'll destroy Israeli nuclear facilities with 20 missiles Speaking during a meeting with a Jordanian-Syrian delegation at the embassy in Amman, Syria's Ambassador to Jordan Bahjat Suleiman said that Syria is capable of destroying Israel's nuclear facilities with 20 missiles, should Syria be attacked, in spite of the many casualties Syria would incur over such a move, Jordanian media reported Thursday. The delegation arrived at the embassy in order to wish the ambassador and his country a happy Eid el-Fitr holiday and express support for Bashar Assad's regime. "What the Zionists…
