New Signposts Newsletter

Our first quarter, (January-March), Signposts of the Times newsletter is now complete and has been added to our link section on the side panel.

The newsletter is a simple synopsis of some recent news headlines which are related to several different prophecy topics.  As Easter is here and we suspect you may have a bunch of family in attendance, here is an opportunity to introduce bible prophecy to your family members who may not be saved or may not know much about the end-times.

Why not print off a copy or two of the newsletter and leave some copies around for you friends and family to pick up and read.  Might be a great way for you to introduce Jesus to your unsaved friends and family.

Maranatha and Blessings to all this Easter.  Drive safe.

The Midnight Cry, The Rapture of The Church

Image
HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE.
"Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon". Luke 24:34 NIV

Why did Jesus come, and why did he have to die on the cross?  Because mankind has a terminal condition called SIN, which separates man from God.  The only way for God to reconcile with mankind, was to incarnate himself as a human being, (Jesus Christ), and to go to the cross to take our punishment for this SIN condition.  All we have to do is to admit that we have a SIN condition and accept the gift that Christ's dying on the cross has accomplished once and for all, for all of us who believe.  That's called repentance and becoming a new person in Christ.


Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV

Once that giant step has been made, God has promised to keep those he knows from the hour of testing that is to come, (the Tribulation).  The Greek phrase interpreted as "keep you from" act…

The Global Elite Are Very Clearly Telling Us That They Plan To Raid Our Bank Accounts

Prophecy Sign:  The collapse of the global economic system


We are not the only ones that thought the recent Euro-bankers move against the personal savings of Cypriot banking customers to be a huge boneheaded move which will only make matters worse.  The following articles attest to this.  We suggest checking out the short 6 minute video below which succinctly summarizes the mess that is the Eurozone and how it will eventually spread throughout the world. 

We keep warning that a global economic tsunami is fast approaching which will bring about the right conditions for the establishment of the Antichrist lead new economic world order, (Revelation 13).

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

Russia Becoming a 'Bona Fide Dictatorship'

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Magog, (Russia), and Gog, (Russian Leader)

Many students of bible prophecy, including ourselves, believe that Russia is the nation referred  to as Magog noted in chapters 38/39 of the book of Ezekiel.  That would make the leader of the Gog/Magog invasion forces that comes against Israel in a last days confrontation likely that of either a current or future leader of Russia.  Well if we are as close to the Tribulation period as we thing we are, then the antics of the current Russia President certainly makes him a good candidate to be that of Gog.

Vladimir Putin, a dictator in the making, has been the driving force behind several recent massive Russian military exercises.  It certainly would seem that the Russia President knows something is coming and is planning for it big-time.

The word of the Lord came to me:  “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshek and Tubal; prophesy against him  and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lo…

Bible comes to life as locusts swarm Israel

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Pestilence and Plagues


Locust plagues in the 21st Century?  Yes, and according to bible prophecy we can expect to see much more of these kind of events of pestilence.


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

Bible comes to life as locusts swarm Israel

Locusts have descended on Israel this week, just in time for Passover. As millions of Jews commemorate the story of the children of Israel’s exodus from Egypt, including the 10 plagues that afflicted Pharaoh and his people, millions of the crunchy buggers are creeping all over Israel’s southern deserts. This is nothing like the eighth plague of biblical times, in which locusts covered “the whole face of the earth” in a kind of collective punishment for the Egyptians whose leader refused to let his Hebrew slaves go free. But this year is the first time since 2005 that modern-day Israel has had to combat locusts, which can swarm s…

U.S. to join Arab nations and restart peace talks, Palestinian official says

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The seven year covenant/peace agreement


So President Obama danced his way through the Holy Land firing up the masses with pep rallies and a whole lot of sweet talk, (all of which he does very well).  The Obama administration will now be front and centre in restarting Mid-East peace talks in yet another attempt to bridge the gap between the Palestinians and Israel.  Someday a framework will be established which will then be confirmed and implemented by the future Antichrist.

He will confirm a covenant with many for one 'seven.' In the middle of the 'seven' he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him." Daniel 9:27 NIV

Pope Francis: 'I Am Thinking Particularly of Dialogue With Islam'

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The uniting of world religions as the global religious system of the Tribulation


We believe that the Roman Catholic Church will be the force behind the establishment of the coming false religious system of the Tribulation period.  The Vatican has for many decades now been trying to bring all religions of the world together in a great ecumenical movement.  It is the Vatican which has begun the process of smoothing the way for the unveiling of "Alien" saviours whom the Vatican will say are our space brothers here to draw us closer to God, (check out the works of Chris Putnam and Tom Horn for more on this).  (We believe this to be part of the great deception and strong delusion spoken of by The Apostle Paul,  2 Thessalonians 2:11)

So it's not surprising then that the new Pope is so intent on building relationships with other world religions such as Islam and Judaism.  If you check out the prophecy from Revelation, you can certainly see many veiled references…

Earthquakes, Volcanoes and other earth changes

Image
Prophecy Sign: Earthquakes, Volcanoes and other earth changes

First, earthquakes, then volcanoes, followed by sink-holes and now reports of the earth being split.  The earth is indeed groaning, (Romans 8:22), in anticipation of Christ's return.  This groaning will soon turn to convulsions and then ultimately violent catastrophes beyond our comprehension, (the Tribulation).

Therefore I will make the heavens tremble; and the earth will shake from its place at the wrath of the LORD Almighty, in the day of his burning anger. Isaiah 24:1 NIV The earth is broken up, the earth is split asunder, the earth is violently shaken. Isaiah 24:1 NIV
Officials investigate cause behind massive earth-split in Brazil
The cause of massive land collapse in Brazil is being investigated. The prosecutor Douglas Roberto Ribeiro de Magalhaes Chegury is investigating the cause of environmental disasters in the cities of Santo Domingo and Campos Belos, Goias in the Northeast. Since yesterday (14/3), surveys are b…

‘Syria no longer exists’

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The destruction and disintegration of Syria

The nation of Syria is crumbling.  Just as bible prophecy, (which was written so very long ago), predicted.  And right there to sweep in a pick up the pieces are the Iranian backed Hezbollah and Iran itself who have become a major power players in end-times events, just as prophecy warned.
Incidentally, we still have not seen any signs of a living Bashar al-Assad since unconfirmed reports last weekend suggested he was assassinated by his own bodyguards.

A prophecy against Damascus: See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins. Isaiah 17:1 NIV Damascus has become feeble, she has turned to flee and panic has gripped her; anguish and pain have seized her, pain like that of a woman in labor.  Why has the city of renown not been abandoned, the town in which I delight? Surely, her young men will fall in the streets; all her soldiers will be silenced in that day,” declares the Lord Almighty. Jeremiah 49:24-2…

Western-Backed “Arab Spring” Leads to Persecution of Christians

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Christian Persecution will get worse in the last days

Thanks to the foreign policies of many Western nations who have pandered to the Islamic radicals that are now taking over the Middle-East, the lives of Christians in the Middle-East have been jeopardized.  If this trend continues, Christianity in the Middle-East will be exterminated.  Thankfully, God will intervene soon and restore his Holy name among the nations, (Ezekiel 38:23), and especially to those in the Middle-East, (Isaiah 19:23-25), who will come to realize Allah is a fraud and the God of Israel is the only true God worthy of worship.

You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. Matthew 10:22 NIV They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, the time is coming when anyone who kills you will think they are offering a service to God. John 16:2 NIV

PERSECUTED: The Global Assault on Christianity

Prophecy Sign:  Christian persecution and marginalization

In many nations, Christians are in peril of torture and even death for their faith, while in other nations the persecution takes the form of scorn, mocking, belittlement and marginalization.  It takes a bold person to stand up for what is right and true according to biblical principals.  This boldness even goes so far as to confronting many so called "Christian" leaders who have watered down the gospel message to such an extent as to become meaningless.

In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 2 Timothy 3:12-13 NIV

PERSECUTED: The Global Assault on Christianity How would you feel if you went to church and wondered if this Sunday your church might be bombed? How would you feel if you expected a knock on your door from government officials who might imprison you for holding a prayer meeting in …

North Korea forces at ‘highest alert’ against U.S., South Korea ‘imperialist aggressors’

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Rumours of Wars


Pinky: "Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?"
The Brain: "The same thing we do every night, Pinky—try to take over the world!"


The bellicose bravado emanating out of North Korea these days had us thinking of a cartoon that our kids use to watch.  It was about two genetically enhanced lab mice, (just how prophetic is that given recent news on genetic manipulation of animals), who desired to take over the world.  One was the brains of the operation and the other was simply insane.

Well we aren't exactly sure who would be the brains behind the North Korean saber rattling going on these days, but we're absolutely sure who the insane one is;  That would be the current North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, (Dennis Rodman's best pal - need we say more?).  The really frightening part of this otherwise comical side-show bunch scurrying about in the hermit kingdom is that they have actual weapons of mass destruction and would be …

Euro chief spooks markets with Cyprus comments

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The collapse of the global economic system

Well the cat is out of the bag now.  The Eurozone chief has said that the Cyprus thing worked so well that in the future when a nation needs to be bailed out, they will simply just raid the savings of all bank account holders.  Presto, problem solved.  Who needs a bank account with money in it anyways, right?

Pretty bad, when the best solution to your every growing debt problems is to steal from citizens who already had their savings taxed at the source. Can you say impending economic collapse?  We knew you could.  Those fools in Europe just poured gasoline on an already blazing fire.


The time has come! The day has arrived! Let not the buyer rejoice nor the seller grieve, for my wrath is on the whole crowd. The seller will not recover the property that was sold—as long as both buyer and seller live. For the vision concerning the whole crowd will not be reversed. Because of their sins, not one of them will preserve their life. E…

US Christians’ Views on the Return of Christ

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The return of Jesus Christ


Some interesting stats on the view of Christs return to earth.

The more you study bible prophecy and take the prophecies literally, (as opposed to allegorically), and then compare those prophecies to current world events, the more sure you become that the return of Jesus Christ is right around the corner.


He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.  The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen. Revelation 22:20-21 NIV
US Christians’ Views on the Return of Christ
Easter is one of the most important religious holidays of the year for many Christians—a time to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. According to a 2010 PewResearchCenter survey, roughly half (48 percent) of Christians in the U.S. say they believe that Christ will definitely (27 percent) or probably (20 percent) return to earth in the next 40 years. Somewhat fewer (38 percent) say this definitely will not happen (10 percent) …

Science-fiction turns real: Genetically engineering animals for war

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Increased knowledge in the last days


Machines that can learn and teach themselves and engineering of animal/machine hybrids that would be used as weapons of war.  Wasn't this the plot of some Hollywood science fiction movie? (eg.  The Terminator movies).  There is a prophecy in the book of Revelation which has been interpreted a million different ways, (an Islamic army, demonic entities, helicopter gunships).  Could it be that of science run amok?

And out of the smoke locusts came down on the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth. The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces. Revelation 9:3,7 NIV
Science-fiction turns real: Genetically engineering animals for war
If these unprompted experiments are any indication, there are plenty of amateurs with an appetite for independent investigation and their own ideas for reengineering animals. Future ge…

Egypt Issues Warrants for Anti-Brotherhood Activists

Image
Prophecy Sign: The destiny of Egypt


The cruel master that Isaiah prophesied would rule over Egypt in the last days, is likely that of the Antichrist, as Daniel notes in his prophecy.  With that said, the current dictator in the making, Mohammed Morsi, is doing his level best to rule Egypt with an iron fist, (note in the article below that Morsi was pounding his fists in anger over dissidents in his nation).  Egypt is racing towards a date with destiny which will involve another war with Israel, (Psalm 83), an invasion by the Antichrist, major devastation of the lands of Egypt, (Ezekiel 29), and ultimately to be brought down to becoming  lowly nation, (Ezekiel 29:15).


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…

China and Russia Relations Reach New Heights

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Powers of the North and the East

The book of Revelation tells us that an army from the East will march towards the Holy Land during the Tribulation,  (Revelation 16:12), while the book of Ezekiel informs us that a massive army lead by a nation from the far north will also march towards Israel sometime during the last days, (Ezekiel 38:15).  Even Daniel records for us prophecies which indicate armies from both the North and the East will drive towards the Holy Land.

If you were to ask 10 different prophecy scholars how all these prophecies fit together in a chronology of events, and you will likely get 10 different answers.  For our purpose here, its not so important when these events will occur, but that it would seem that both the Armies of the North and the East at some point align together in a war against the armies of the Antichrist. So that begs the question; Just who are these armies?  We would suggest that the Northern armies represent a power bloc lead by Russ…

Assad Confirmed Dead, Iran Attempts To Control Syria Army

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The coming Middle-East wars - Syria, (Isaiah 17, Jeremiah 49, Amos 1)

  Unconfirmed reports suggest that Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad may have been shot by his own body guards over the weekend, and may have died.  We have hunted high and low for any corroboration to these reports but have found none.  So take these reports for what they are....Unconfirmed.  Only time will tell.

If true, this could change the landscape in Syria and the Middle-East radically.

Assad Confirmed Dead, Iran Attempts To Control Syria Army
Russian media sources have confirmed that Syria President Bashar Assad was shot by an Iranian bodyguard Saturday night. "The lone assassination pumped several bullets at point blank range into Assad," said the source. "Assad was rushed to Al-ShamiHospital in Damascus in critical condition. He died on the operating table from heart failure resulting from massive blood loss." An Israeli security analyst believes the report to be accurate.

Lesbian Mary, Mother of God!

Prophecy Sign:  Christian hatred and persecution



Two more news reports which just go to show the hatred that is growing in the western world towards Christianity and the name of Jesus.  It will only get worse in these, the last days.


"If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. John 15:18-19 NIV

Lesbian Mary, Mother of God!
A public charter school in Massachusetts turned a deaf ear to protests last week and followed through with performing a pro-homosexual play that mocks the Bible and has been blasted as “blasphemous.” Students from the Pioneer Valley Performing Arts Charter Public School, or PVPA, (which serves 400 pupils, grades 7-12, in South Hadley, Mass.), on March 15-17 performed the controversial play, “The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told.”  A 1998 Paul Rudnick comedy that had a run in th…

North Korea warning that war is coming

Image
Prophecy Sign:  Wars and Rumours of Wars, (Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21)

Events continue to heat up on the Korean peninsula, as the North's belligerence and rhetoric become every more bellicose.

North Korea warning that war is coming North Korea was rattling its sabers and sparking fears overnight. Its military is now threatening South Korea, Japan and the United States saying that war is coming. The statement from military leaders have said "Outbreak of war in Korea is now just a matter of time. Nothing can prevent war from breaking out." The communist North is claiming that its missiles will target U.S. bases in Guam and Japan. That is where some of our nuclear submarines and B-52 bombers are based. The threat came two days after U.S. bombers carried out simulated nuclear bombing raids on North Korea. Tensions spiked in the region after North Korea carried out its latest underground nuclear test last month. And then again after new United Nation sanctions last week…

RUSSIAN WARNING: Move your money now

Image
Prophecy Sign:  The collapse of the world economy, (Ezekiel 7, James 5)


Cyprus has come to an agreement with the banking cartels and has agreed to steal, pilfer and abscond with upwards of 40% of funds for those personal accounts holding over $100,000 Euro. All part of a 13 billion dollar bailout.

Needless to say, this has set a precedent for future bailouts, and will only worsen the situation in Europe.  Watch funds now fly out of the weaker European nations and banks as investors flee for safer investment options.  If the rumours are true, Russia may have already warned their citizens and companies doing business around the world to begin divesting their investments in Western banks.  The slow motion train wreck that is the Eurozone continues to crash before our eyes.


Cyprus Salvaged After EU Deal Shuts Bank to Get $13B Cyprus dodged a disorderly sovereign default and unprecedented exit from the euro by bowing to demands from creditors to shrink its banking system in exchange for 10 b…

Obama gave Netanyahu the green light on Iran

Prophecy Sign:  The coming Middle-East Wars - Iran, (Jeremiah 49, Ezekiel 38/39)

Three more months before war?  Did President Obama give the green light to Israel to go ahead with a military strike after June?  Stayed tuned.

Obama gave Netanyahu the green light on Iran Most analysts think President Obama went to Israel in a public relations effort to smooth relations between the two countries. He wasn’t aiming for any breakthroughs in the peace process, and tried to dampen expectations in advance.  The visit may have started out that way, but by the end I think something significant did happen.  There are signs President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu have come to some sort of private understanding over Iran. I think Obama gave Netanyahu a green light to do whatever Israel has to do to stop Iran.  America will give Israel the advanced weapons it needs for a preemptive strike against Iran’s nuclear sites, but will not join in that fight. Obama said, “we’ve got your back,” but did not…
