The Singularity: what to expect when machines get smarter than us

Prophecy Sign:  Increased Knowledge

The year 2013 is but hours away, (as of this writing).  According to the articles below, the merging of human and machine, (including perhaps implanting human consciousness), is predicted to occur sometime between 2030 and 2050.  That's only between 17 to 37 years from now.  Think about that for a moment.  If you have a child today, its possible that by the time they are 20-25 years old, they will be thinking more about just what kind of robotic machine they want to implant their consciousness into, rather than what college or university to attend.

We don't believe God is going to allow mankind to ultimately reached those lofty goals, and in fact will end things long before man becomes machine.  This is one of the reasons we believe we are deep into the very last of the last days.  Knowledge is growing at rates beyond our comprehension.

But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to an…

The Coming Interspiritual Age

Prophecy Sign:  The coming global religious system

As much as the Atheists of the world would wish it, they will never accomplish their goal of eliminating religion, (and in particular, Christianity), from the consciousnesses of the world.  Satan know this, and in fact will use religion to bring about his conquest of the world.  He needs a global religious system to be in place which will be used to point to his protegee as the Messiah of the world.  Hence the term "Antichrist" which means in place of Christ.  Satan wants the world to worship him, (he will indwell the Antichrist),  so every religion of the world will come together in unity to achieve this objective.

We believe that the Roman Church, (Catholicism), will be the backbone of this religious unity.  It is Rome which has brought together leaders of all the religions of the world together in several major ecumenical conferences over the years.  All for the purpose of bringing religions together as equal routes to Go…

Hitler statue in former Polish ghetto creates furor

Prophecy Sign:  Jewish hatred
Just what idiot could have thought that placing a statue of a praying Hitler in the heart of the former ghetto of the Jews in Warsaw Poland would be a good idea?  Some 300,000 Jews perished in that Ghetto during World War 2, and as is noted in the article below, the only praying Hitler may have ever done was to pray for the annihilation of the Jewish race.  
Hatred of the Jews comes in all forms, including from those who consider themselves enlightened members of the arts community. (With no offence indented towards true artists out there). 

Hitler statue in former Polish ghetto creates furor
The statue of Adolf Hitler placed in former ghetto in Warsaw caused public uproar, with many calling it a ‘senseless provocation’, while others claim the artwork has no intention to harm anyone’s memory. The artwork by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan, titled HIM, presents Adolf Hitler standing on his knees with his hands put together as if for prayers. The statue can …

North Korea EMP attack could destroy U.S. — now

Prophecy Sign:  Rumours of Wars

There is a reason the world should be fearful of the nut cases who control the rogue state of North Korea.  They control the ability to cause great chaos upon the world with a single nuclear missile explosion over North America. This little bit of news could be filed under the categories of perilous times or rumours of wars, or both.

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. Matthew 24:6 NIV

North Korea EMP attack could destroy U.S. — now
North Korea has labored for years and starved its people so it could develop an intercontinental missile capable of reaching the United States. Why? Because they have a special kind of nuclear weapon that could destroy the United States with a single blow. In summer 2004, a delegation of Russian generals warned the Congressional Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Commission that secrets had leaked to North Korea for a decisive new n…

‘US, Russia plunging into new Cold War’

Prophecy Sign:  The Gog/Magog alliance - Russia

Over the last several years we have seen Russia take back it place as a friend to the Islamic Middle-East, (Syria, Iran, Turkey), grow stronger on the political and economic stage, and now, begin to distance itself from the influence of the West.  In short, Russia is being set up for its place in last days bible prophecy.

The nation from the farthest reaches north of Israel will eventually align itself with the Muslim world and lead an attempted invasion of the land of Israel.  God will be the one behind this movement of Russia to become the leader of this future alliance.  We believe that this will be God's way of bringing judgement on the leaders and armies of Russia for their decades long support of the Muslim worlds hatred towards the nation of Israel. By dragging the Russian armies to the middle-east, for judgement, God will be leaving the Russia people behind back home to witness an event that will open their eyes to who the G…

Doomsday Ready? More Americans Becoming 'Preppers'

Prophecy Sign:  Perilous times

We are of the opinion that Jesus Christ will return for his Church, (the Bride of Christ), prior to the 7 years of peril and judgement, known as the Tribulation period.  This period will be a time of great trouble, including famines, wars, natural catastrophes, pestilence and plagues.

However, with the way things are going, there may be days ahead, while not part of the actual 7 years of Tribulation, could be quite perilous and may be something the Christian should plan ahead for. An economic collapse, a major middle-east war, skyrocketing oil prices may be events that set the stage for the final 7 year Tribulation period, and would be events that could prove fatal to those not prepared.

Remember Joseph?  He was given wisdom by God to not only interpret the dreams of Pharaoh which warned of a 7 year period of peril, (famine), but God gave Joseph the smarts to know how to plan ahead to ensure that Egypt would make it through the rough days that would be …

Global Flu Pandemic 'Inevitable,' Expert Warns

Prophecy Sign:  Pestilence and Plagues

Bible prophecy warns that during the Tribulation, many people will perish from plague and disease  and also from the wild beasts of the earth.  That could mean death by actual wild animals, or perhaps by the spreading of disease from animals.  In particular, a flu pandemic could be spread by way of birds, both wild and domestic.  If people are lacking food and have compromised health conditions from famine and the like, then pandemics can easily sweep through these populations killing many people.

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

Cliff Hanger: Washington Tries for Last-Minute Deal

Prophecy Sign:  Economic peril

This blog site receives visits from people around the world.  And in those various nations represented, taxes can be much higher than America, or in some case much lower.  Some nations have very large accumulated debts which are causing great harm to their economies, (eg Greece), while other nations are still some distance from the cliff but are plowing towards the edge with reckless abandon, (eg America).

So how will America's proverbial cliff dive affect the rest of the world?  That remains to be seen.  A good glimpse into such a scenario may be just ahead as America is only hours from taking a plunge over the cliff.  How America's troubles will effect the world as a whole will not be known for weeks if not months.  However for Americans, the effects of the coming cliff dive will be known immediately.  If you are an America, check out the video below which will let you know just what is ahead for you and your family if your politicians fail to …

China requires Internet users to register names

Prophecy Sign:  World government - authority over all
Western nations recently shot down a United Nations attempt to take control over the internet.  However that hasn't stopped the Chinese government from slapping new restrictions on the world wide web in China.  Chinese internet users will now be required to register their names with the government, (oh that won't be abused at all), with many Chinese commentators worried this will end what little freedom of speech the Chinese people have under the present internet rules.
We have been warning for some time that this is the ultimate objective of world elites who are busily setting up a system in which a future world leader will not have to worry about annoying scrutiny from the rabble rousing rebels of the world.  Christian websites that even come close to questioning the legitimacy of a coming world ruler, (Antichrist), will be shut down faster than you can say delet........!!

Israel takes in more Bnei Menashe 'lost tribe' members

Prophecy Sign:  Regathering of the Jews from all corners of the Earth

Interesting how Isaiah phrased the words of God, when told that the Jews would be regathered at the end of days from the four corners of the world.  Isaiah noted that God would simply bring the Jews from the East and West, while God would command that the North "give them up" and to the South that they "do not hold them back".  Some prophecy scholars suggest that the East, (Asia), and the West, (Europe & the Americas), due to their general democratic systems allowed for the free emigration of the Jews from their nations, (to leave freely).  While the North, (Russia), had to be commanded to give up the nearly 1 million Eastern Bloc Jews who have settled in Israel, and the South, (Ethiopia and other Muslim nations), were told not to hold back the movement of the Jews.

If you remember you history, under the old Soviet Union, the Russians refused for decades to allow the emigration of Jews to th…

Hamas Leader: Israel is a 'Cancerous Tumor' that must be removed

Prophecy Sign:  Israel and the Palestinians

How does Israel negotiate peace with a group calling for her destruction?  She doesn't, and in fact, these people who are described as "Kerethite people" by the Prophect Zephaniah, are slated for future destruction themselves.  The Hebrew word, from which we have "Kerethite", is defined as a group of people who are executioners, mercenary soldiers or bodyguards, (more information here).  Does that not described the Palestinians forces of Gaza and the Palestinian intifadas that are called for by Palestinian leaders?

God is warning that he will take matters into his own hand and will end once and for all the Palestinian threat to the Jewish people.  We believe this will be but a small part of a much larger future Middle-East war in which the Islamic world will loose badly.  This deadly war will be the catalyst for a seven year treaty of peace, (Daniel 9:27), that will be negotiated between Israel and the world.

Gaza wil…

Israel fears EU may push for peace in 2013

Prophecy Sign:  The covenant of death - the seven year treaty of peace

While not an interpretation accepted by all bible prophecy scholars, the interpretation of a European born Antichrist who brokers a seven year treaty with Israel is the theory with the most support among the prophecy community.

So when we read an article which reports that the European Union, (soon to be the EU Superstate - complete with an elected President), may attempt to force a peace agreement upon Israel, we sit up and take notice.  If the general consensus interpretation of a European led and brokered middle-east peace deal is the real deal, then we should expect to see more articles relating to Israel, the Middle-East and the European Union.

The other multi-national world organization out there, the United Nations, would be more than happy to see the Europeans broker such a peace deal, which the U.N. would be more than happy to ratify globally.  However as we all know, this European Antichrist brokered dea…

Christmas blessing to all our Readers

From all of us, to all of you.  We wish you a very blessed Christmas.  In the rush of the season, we pray you will stop for a moment and remember the real reason for the season:

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.  And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there w…

Christianity 'close to extinction' in Middle East

Prophecy Sign:  Christian Persecution in the World

Laws in the West preclude actual Christian persecution, (murder, etc), thus Satan has to resort to Christian marginalization in the West.  However in much of the remainder of the world, and especially the Islamic world, no such restrictions are present, (or if there is, are simply ignored).  Thus, Satan has free reign to incite great hatred in those nations towards Christians, with this hatred even going so far as to seeing people killed for converting from Islam to Christianity.  The hatred is so great that a great number of Christians have fled these nations looking for freedom to worship elsewhere.  This has meant that Christianity is near extinction in many Islamic nations, (Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, etc).

Bible prophecy warns that this trend would be prevalent in the last days, and would only increase.  Expect to see many more stories such as this in 2013 and beyond.

Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put…

Christianity being 'airbrushed' out of Christmas cards

Prophecy Sign:  Christian Marginalization in the Western World

Many are turning away from the faith.  In other words, the so-called "Christian" west, is becoming far less Christian and far more secular.  In some places it is even becoming difficult to find a truly Christian Christmas card, with most cards featuring only a secularized Christmas setting, (Santa Claus, Reindeer's, etc). 

Look for this trend of removing Christianity from society to increase greatly in the year 2013 and beyond.

At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. Matthew 24:10-12 NIV

Christianity being 'airbrushed' out of Christmas cards Out of almost 6,000 types of Christmas card on sale in supermarkets, card shops and convenience stores sampled, only 34 featured nativity scenes. Even when cards with other vaguely religious …

N. Korea develops missiles capable of reaching US – Seoul

Prophecy Sign:  Wars and Rumors of Wars

The world is closer to a World War 3 scenario than it has been since the demise of the Soviet Union.  The Middle-East is the obvious area of concern, but so is Asia as two different Asian threats threaten to entangled the world in war.  The Japan/China squabble over some rocks in the China Sea has escalated in recent months, and with North Korea's recent launch of a ballistic missile, (cable of eventually packing a nuclear warhead), has shown that Asia needs to be watched in 2013.

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. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.  All these are the beginning of birth pains. Matthew 24:6-8 NIV

'Hamas preparing for West Bank takeover'

Prophecy Sign:  The destiny of the Palestinians

With the Untied Nations having recently given Palestine near statehood recognition, and with an emboldened Hamas entrenched in Gaza and making moves on the West Bank, (see article below), it's a near certainty that there will be no peace between Israel and the Palestinians under the current situations that exist.  Rather we believe that war between Israel and Palestine will ensue first, with the Palestinians and most certainly Gaza, loosing badly.  Watch for events to unfold in the Holy Land in 2013.

Gaza will be abandoned and Ashkelon left in ruins. At middayAshdod will be emptied and Ekron uprooted.  Woe to you who live by the sea, you Kerethite people; the word of the Lord is against you, Canaan, land of the Philistines. He says, “I will destroy you, and none will be left.” Zephaniah 2:4-5 NIV

Syrians pack up to flee Damascus as war escalates

Prophecy Sign:  The destiny of Syria & Damascus

Keep a close eye on Syria in 2013.  Whether at the hands of Israel and the West, or by the hands of the Syrian insurgents, the Syrian capital of Damascus will eventually become a heap of ruins.  Both Syria and Iran are the tinder that can ignite full-scale war in the Middle-East  Syria with its vast supplies of Chemical and Biological weapons, and Iran with it drive for Nuclear weapons, both present existential threats to the existence of Israel.

A prophecy against Damascus: “See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins. The cities of Aroer will be deserted and left to flocks, which will lie down, with no one to make them afraid. Isaiah 17:1-2 NIV

Syrians pack up to flee Damascus as war escalates The violence creeping on Damascus "is significant because the capital is the major prize," Joshua Landis, director of the Middle East studies program at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, said in a teleph…

Muslim Brotherhood claims victory in Egypt constitution vote amid fraud allegations

Prophecy Sign:  The destiny of Egypt

Continue to watch events in Egypt in 2013.  There will continue to be revolution and civil strife as the Islamic Muslim Brotherhood takes hold, and entrenches an Islamic based constitution.  Watch to see what kind of leader the new President of Egypt will become.  We believe he is already on the road to becoming just another despot ruling with an iron fist.  Bible prophecy has much to say about Egypt in end-times prophecy, (Ezekiel 29, Isaiah 19).

“I will stir up Egyptian against Egyptian—brother will fight against brother, neighbor against neighbor, city against city, kingdom against kingdom. The Egyptians will lose heart, and I will bring their plans to nothing; they will consult the idols and the spirits of the dead, the mediums and the spiritists. 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 19:2-4 NIV

Eve of Destruction

Prophecy Sign??:  The end of the world as we know it?  December 21, 2012

So tomorrow is December 21, 2012.  The end of the world as the Mayans predicted.  Actually, the Mayans never predicted the end of the world, only that their calender would end that day, and that perhaps we would enter a new age.  However, never to leave a good story line left unused, the global media, and Hollywood have played up the the end of 2012 with as much gusto as anything they previously fixated upon.

So don't worry, the world is not about the end with a huge bang.  There will be a sunrise to watch the following morning, (unless the clouds hang around), and a new day will begin as it has since the creation of the earth.  God has promised as much:

"As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease." Genesis 8:22 NIV
However, with that said, dark days are fast approaching.  Bible prophecy will be fulfilled and that means many of…

A Putin-Arab Alliance?

Prophecy Sign:  The Gog/Magog Alliance - Russia

The following is a very interesting article which suggest a very plausible reason why Russia and her leader will align with the Islamic world for an invasion of the middle-east, and in particular, Israel.

With news of major oil and natural gas discoveries in and around Israel having been reported in recent years, and with the apparent desire of the Russia President to secure control of natural resources, one can see how Russia will make a move on the middle-east at some point in time.  The article suggest that a Russian/Islamic alliance could secure as much as 40% of world oil reserves, giving Russia immense power and great wealth as world crude oil prices could be better controlled by Russia.

When we look at the prophecy of the Gog/Magog war of Ezekiel chapters 38 & 39, we are told that a major power from the far north of Israel, (most prophecy experts believe to by Russia), will align with the Islamic world of the middle-east, and …

Deadly virus that has killed hundreds of lambs and calves on UK farms 'has spread to every county'

Prophecy Sign:  Pestilence and plagues

Pestilence, disease and plagues will become more prevalent in the world as we move towards the last days.  It won't only effect humankind, but the animal world as well.

There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven. Luke 21:11 NIV
Deadly virus that has killed hundreds of lambs and calves on UK farms 'has spread to every county'
A killer virus blighting lambs and calves has spread across the country, infecting the majority of farms, experts said yesterday. Schmallenberg virus, which has already killed hundreds of lambs and calves or caused them to be born with serious deformities, has been detected in every county in England and Wales. Those figures are now expected to rise into the thousands as the new lambing season begins. The disease has been discovered on 976 British farms, compared with 276 in August. The virus, which is spread by bloodsucking midges, has t…

Could Japan Spark a New Asian War?

Prophecy Sign:  Rumors of Wars

While the worlds focus has been on the middle-east for good reason, we have also been keenly watching events in Asia as well.  Of course we all know of the threat that nuclear armed North Korea has on the world, but there is also the growing tensions between Japan and China that could jeopardize world peace. An interesting article, (see below), suggests that it could be Japan that triggers war with China rather than the other way around.  Just more rumors of wars, as bible prophecy warns.

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. Matthew 24:6 NIV
Could Japan Spark a New Asian War?
Last Sunday in Japan, the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) completely crushed its main competition in the elections, defeating the ruling Democratic Party of Japan. The LDP took 294 of the 480 seats that were available, handing Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda an absolute shellacking. The lea…

15 Signs That The Ring Of Fire Is Waking Up As We Head Into 2013

Prophecy Sign:  Earthquakes and Volcanoes in diverse places

The ring of fire has shown a great deal of activity over the past few month.  What that means for the future remains to be seen.  Expect to see more destructive earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions.  All of this should not come as a surprise, as bible prophecy warned that we would see an increase in seismic events as we enter into the final days of this dispensation of time.

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
15 Signs That The Ring Of Fire Is Waking Up As We Head Into 2013
While most of the world has been focused on other things, the Ring of Fire has been quietly waking up.  Over the past couple of months, there has been a steady string of noteworthy volcanic eruptions and earthquakes that have occurred along the perimeter of the Pacific Ocean.  But because none of them have happened …

Surveillance State: Ecuador Implements “World’s First” Countrywide Facial- and Voice-Recognition System

Prophecy Sign:  The global surveillance/police state

Ecuador has become the first nation to implement a nationwide facial and voice recognition system.  The system will be built upon a massive database containing biometric information, including voiceprints and photos of  potentially millions of people.  The system would then be able to quickly identify a person from a video camera shot, or an intercepted phone conversation.

Assuming, the authorities identify and arrest their suspect, they can then subdue them with a new hi-tech pair of handcuffs that can both administer electrical shocks and or chemical injections to the detained person.  All this coming to a nation near you.  The coming global world leader known as the Antichrist will have the most sophisticated police state ever at his disposal with which to take authority over the world.

It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and na…
